Spicejet which recently began passenger services from Surat to Mumbai and Delhi will now start air-cargo services beginning from April.

Spicejet intends to start passenger cum cargo services, once it gets approvals from relevant agencies.

Surat is catering to almost 65-70% of the national requirement of synthetic fabrics. Traders from all over the country visit Surat, so the air-cargo service will tremendously benefit the industry, said, Mr Rohit Mehta, President – SGCCI.

He added, “SpiceJet has currently connected Surat with New Delhi and Mumbai. Hence, indirectly Surat is connected to the whole of India because; one can get connecting flights through these important metros”.

“The passenger services coupled with air-cargo facilities will ultimately increase business of the textile and diamond sector in Surat”, he observed.

Federation of Surat Textiles Traders Association (FOSTTA) had earlier demanded starting of services from Surat to Hyderabad, Chennai, Patna, Lucknow, Amritsar, Bangalore, Kolkata and other towns and cities.
