IndiGo has commenced operations of its first A321 Freighter aircraft between Delhi and Mumbai, effective November 15, 2022. The aircraft converted from passenger jet to a full freighter configuration will be used for general freight on the inaugural Delhi- Mumbai flight, while carrying general and e-commerce CarGo on the return leg. These inaugural flights will carry a payload of more than 20 tons on each leg.
IndiGo welcomed it?s first 321F last month after which it got all registration done. Progressively this aircraft, and the next aircraft which is expected to arrive later this year, will be deployed on international routes too.
Mahesh Malik, Chief Commercial Officer - CarGo, IndiGo said: ?We are excited at kicking off a new chapter in IndiGo?s journey with the inaugural CarGo flights. Delhi and Mumbai are the two biggest commercial hubs in the country, and the response we have received from customers for our service offering is very encouraging. We expect the business to grow over the coming few months, as we expand our fleet of freighters and add new destinations to our CarGo network.?
