Amazon launches dedicated air cargo service ‘Amazon Air’ in India, its third market 

As it looks to expand and speed-up deliveries across one of its key markets amid fast-growing e-commerce sales, e-commerce major Amazon on Monday launched its dedicated air cargo service, Amazon Air, in India, with two aircraft that it leased from QuikJet Cargo Airlines. The aircraft will crisscross Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad, taking shipments from the respective cities. 
The move to have a dedicated cargo service will give Amazon tighter control over costs and flight schedules while reducing delivery times across a wider range of products. It wants to deliver the majority of shipments in two days or less and Amazon Air enables this. India is the third market, after the United States and Europe, where the company has launched Amazon Air, as per a report.
