SpiceJet to launch freighter service via Visakhapatnam

With SpiceJet decision to launch air freight services along Chennai–Vizag– Kolkata, Visakhapatnam is set to get its first exclusive cargo flight. The flight which is capable of carrying 20 tonne of air cargo is expected to be launched in mid-February and operate on a daily basis.  The Andhra Pradesh Air Travelers Association (APATA) has been pursuing the introduction of air cargo flight from Vizag for quite some time. The association has also informed that Air India has agreed to cut the cargo rates from Visakhapatnam, as the cargo rates of Air India in Visakhapatnam are higher as compared to those in Hyderabad.
