Demos Aviation, a part of Sentro Group continues to ramp up its air cargo network in CIS Nations with the launch of its first smaller capacity aircraft cargo charter flight between India & Uzbekistan.
The first flight took place on July 7 on Delhi International Airport – Tashkent International Airport route on A 320 PTC smaller capacity aircraft to provide frequent service to clients based in CIS, operated under the flag of Go Air now known as Go First.
The DEL-TAS route helps to deliver essential medical equipment and pharmaceuticals products from India to the region. The cargo charter flights can also carry cross-border e-commerce products such as apparel and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG).
Delmos Aviation focuses on improving regular cargo operations between India & Uzbekistan and other CIS Nations, as India is the primary exporter of essential pharma supplies to the region. And such cargo charter operations will further enhance and smoothen the supply chain for both the pharma sector and CIS region requirements. With the coronavirus pandemic grounding international passenger jets, and maritime shipping facing delays, global logistics continue to face uncertainty. Customized cargo charters are the way forward.
Dr Naveen Rao, Group Chairman, said, We are so excited to launch regular cargo charter services and are happy to provide an enhanced and streamlined cargo charter experience across the entire network. The charter flight on 7th July is a pilot flight project. It has been a milestone for all.”
He further added that we are further exploring more partnerships with different airlines to introduce smaller capacity aircraft to provide frequent charter service to the pharma sector in the region and FMCG products too.
Kaushik Khona, CEO, Go First said, “Go First is eyeing expansion in the CIS region including Uzbekistan and this dedicated cargo charter is a step in that direction. These flight will further increase our network in the region and will definitively support the supply chain movement. We are exploring newer avenues in future to enhance and streamline cargo charter experience across our entire network. With Go First’s competitive advantages, companies will greatly benefit from our excellent value added services”.
