This service will connect Chennai, Hyderabad, Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore sectors and has a capacity to carry 20 tonnes of cargo.
'India is taking bold initiatives like 'Make in India', promoting and growing our 'Smart Cities' and becoming a US$5 trillion economy in the fastest possible time,' said SpiceJet project officer Manjiv Singh.
'SpiceJet will continue to contribute to the trade by continuously increasing our geographic reach. Today's consumers demand for the quickest deliveries possible. This has been shaping the e-commerce and logistics processes, and in turn the express logistics sector,' said Mr Singh.
