Amazon became India’s first e-commerce company to launch its dedicated air cargo service in India for the first time outside of Europe and North America. Amazon Air will use the cargo capacity of two Boeing 737-800 aircraft operated by Quikjet Cargo Airlines. Amazon Air aircraft will deliver to Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Delhi, and Mumbai with thousands of packages every day. Amazon Air will help in the faster delivery of goods.

In Hyderabad today, Telangana’s minister for Municipal Administration & Urban Development, Industries & Commerce, and Information Technology, along with Amazon chief executives, inducted the brand-new aircraft. “Due to its strategic geographical location, improved domestic air network, and the increasing popularity of e-commerce in the country, Hyderabad has become a major hub for e-commerce distribution,” said Akhil Saxena, Amazon Vice President – Customer Fulfillment (APAC, MENA & LATAM) and WW Customer Service.

“The Telangana state provides a conducive environment for the development of multi-modal connectivity, and Hyderabad has emerged as a major hub for e-commerce distribution and supply chain activities. KT Rama Rao said, “We have been working towards enhancing the state’s air cargo infrastructure, and we welcome Amazon Air’s launch, which will further make Hyderabad a cargo hub for the country and create additional employment opportunities.”

Amazon started its Air freight services in 2016 in the U.S., operating a network of over 110 jets that fly to over 70 locations worldwide.
