New Delhi, India - Indian low-cost carrier SpiceJet has converted three  Dash 8-400 turboprop passenger aircraft into freighters to carry cargo within India.


The airline did not identify the specific De Havilland Aircraft of Canada turboprops it had converted but said they were selected from a batch of 22 older 78-seat units. The remaining ten Q400s (of which all but one are younger than two years) are configured for up to 90 passengers.
"These smaller cargo planes are perfectly suited for operations to Tier II and III cities and to remote and hilly areas in the North East, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh,"
Chairman and Managing Director Ajay Singh said.

The Indian airline normally operates five dedicated-freighters under its Spice Xpress brand - three Boeing 737-700(F)s and two -800(F)s.

SpiceJet has 32 De Havilland Dash-400 aircraft in its fleet.
