SpiceJet to induct its first Airbus A340 cargo aircraft in freighters fleet

new Delhi. SpiceJet will soon include Airbus A340 cargo aircraft in its fleet of carriers. The airline gave this information in a statement on Monday. SpiceJet will be able to operate long-haul cargo flights to Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and African regions after the introduction of larger-size aircraft in the transportation fleet. After the Airbus A340 cargo aircraft, SpiceJet will have a total of nine cargo aircraft in its fleet. These include five Boeing 737s, three Bombardier Q-400s and one Airbus 340.

SpiceJet Chairman and Managing Director Ajay Singh said that the first large-size cargo aircraft will prove to be the turning point in our journey as the country's largest cargo operator. He said the airline would soon start direct cargo flights to Europe, Africa and CIS countries. Singh said that a few months ago we could not even think about it.

First cruise leaves in Italy amidst global epidemic

In Italy, the temperature of people traveling to the first cruise ship departing amid the lockdown caused by the global pandemic Corona virus was measured and their Kovid-19 examined. Cruise company 'MSC' has prepared a process for crew members and passengers under its new health and safety guidelines. MSC's Grandiosa left from the northern Italian port of Genoa for a seven-day voyage into the western Mediterranean Sea on Sunday evening.

The company said that they were not allowed to go on cruise if anyone was found infected or had symptoms of Kovid-19 fever. Passengers have been asked to wear masks in elevators or other places where social distance is not possible. The crew members were also living separately before boarding the cruise. The Italian government earlier this month approved departure from cruise ports in Italy with a capacity of 70 percent. MSC did not provide any information about how many passengers are in the cruise.
