SpiceJet cargo arm applies for separate AOC
SpiceJet's cargo arm SpiceXpress is one of the four companies that has applied for a No Objection Certificate (NOC) to launch their 'scheduled air cargo operations,' the Minister of State for the Ministry of Civil Aviation, VK Singh revealed during the last Council of Ministers meeting in the Indian Parliament.
Other companies that are participants in the process of obtaining a NOC are the ultra-low-cost carrier Akasa Air and TruJet.
Once the Indian Civil Aviation Ministry clears the NOC, SpiceXpress intends to have a separate Air Operators Certificate (AOC), distinguishing the airline's passenger and air cargo operations.
An AOC granted by the Civil Aviation Authority of the state is needed by SpiceXpress to conduct its scheduled air cargo operations.
As per SpiceJet's latest quarterly financial report for 2021, cargo operations have witnessed a significant surge since 2020.
Currently, the low-cost carrier operates three Boeing 737-700 Fs freighter aircraft in addition to its fleet of passenger aircraft.
