New Delhi, India - The Indian low-cost operator SpiceJet has received its first Boeing 737-800BCF (Boeing Converted Freighter).

SpiceExpress was founded in September 2018 and began operations in January 2019 on the Delhi-Bengaluru-Delhi route.

With this new freight line, the airline became the first airline to operate freight services between Northeast India and Southeast Asia.

SpiceExpress currently has two Boeing 737-700 freighter jets in its fleet. The parent SpiceJet plans to expand the fleet of its new subsidiary to 20 aircraft by 2022.

The Boeing 737-800BCF is a converted freighter aircraft that was previously operated for passenger transport.

The Boeing 737-800BCF is able to carry around 23 tonnes of cargo.

According to Boeing, the 737-800BCF is 20% more fuel-efficient compared with the classic 737s.
