SpiceJet has applied to US authorities to start Covid-19-related cargo flights as soon as possible, and is looking initially to wet lease aircraft for the operation.
The Indian low-cost carrier applied last week to fly an all-cargo service between India, the US and any point, as well as cargo charters and cargo/passenger combination flights.
It said: “Specifically, SpiceJet plans to start operating charters carrying Covid-19 PPE cargo and repatriation passengers between Delhi, India, and New York JFK as soon as possible, thus contributing to the ongoing relief operations to combat the pandemic.
“Subject to appropriate authorisations, it may start charter flights through a wet-lease arrangement at the outset and then transition to its own fleet.”
