Amazon Group launches Amazon Air, a freight service air in India  

The e-commerc giant Amazon is getting serious about its logistics business, the company launched Amazon Air, a dedicated air cargo fleet in India. 

Amazon has partnered with Bangaluru cargo airline company Quikjet to launch the Amazon Air business. The investment will help the group to double down its logistics infrustructure ambition. 

The group sees India as part of its key strategics market for the company hence the investment in the freight and logistic business. 

Amazon, which is utilizing the Boeing 737-800 for the service, said it will initially use Amazon Air to deliver goods in Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.

“Amazon India uses its own services for delivery of around 80-85% of orders and has opened up its delivery arm to others sellers. Delivery itself is a business which can achieve massive scale in India. So it makes sense for them to start this in India,” said Satish Meena, an independent analyst who tracks e-commerce sector in the country. 

India becomes the third country to have Amazon Air, after Unites States and UK – United Kingdom.
