MGH Group is the Global Cargo General Sales Agent (GSA) of SpiceJet

The MGH Group has been actively involved in supporting SpiceJet freighter flights carrying crucial medical supplies from various countries to India, while extending full support to the airline’s regular cargo operations to Hanoi and Bangkok.

MGH Group is the Global Cargo General Sales Agent (GSA) of SpiceJet.

Anis Ahmed, founder & CEO of MGH Group said: “Ajay Singh’s [Co-founder and Chairman of SpiceJet] bold and farsighted move to set-up an independent cargo arm for SpiceJet has paid rich dividends by not only ensuring the key supply chain remains intact, but also providing healthy cash flows for the company when air passenger operations have been completely grounded." 

“He’s a true visionary. No other Indian carrier runs a dedicated freighter fleet and it was indeed a bold bet to make in 2018,” he added.

SpiceJet’s fleet of five dedicated freighters are crisscrossing the global skies carrying vital supplies including medicines, medical devices, cold chain medical supplies and farm produce for various governments, medical and pharma companies, international retailers and farmer bodies in this global war against theCovid-19 pandemic.

The airline has transported close to 4000 tons of cargo on more than 430 flights since the nation-wide lockdown began in India three weeks back, which is more than 70% of all air cargo carried by Indian airlines.

SpiceJet, India’s second largest airline, has been ferrying crucial medical supplies to and from Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Ho Chi Minh City, Colombo, Kabul, Dubai and a host of other places. 

SpiceJet’s cargo operations have been significantly boosted by the airline’s passenger aircraft fleet where both its B737 and Q400 aircraft have been deployed to operate cargo-on-seat flights.

The airline has even operated special flights to carry quarantined passengers to government facilities providing its planes, crew and staff for national duty.

SpiceJet, along with the MGH Group, has been planning to further expand its freighter operations and add multiple global routes to its fast expanding network, considering the surge in demand for essentials and medical supplies globally.

SpiceXpress, SpiceJet’s dedicated cargo arm, launched in September 2018, operates on both domestic and international routes and is powered by SpiceJet’s fully integrated transportation network which includes air cargo, ground transportation and warehousing facilities across the country. 

MGH Logistics is a Singapore headquartered, Bangladesh born, sprawling and diversified conglomerate with a presence in 18 emerging markets over 13 years. 

The company has a major stronghold in Asia, Middle East and Africa, and is rapidly expanding into Europe.
