According to aviation journalist Jagriti Chandra, the freight service company has not managed to reimburse its pilots for their salaries since the beginning of 2024.

Towards the end of May, the freight company had managed to procure two of Boeing's 737-800BCFs cargo flights. In the bargain, they became only the fourth operator of 737NG freighters in India.

No Response From Afcom

The issues concerning this segment of the vast airline sector are often unnoticed. This is even more crucial as the air freight sector is only growing. In fact, in 2023-24, the sector grew 7 per cent.

In this case, international shipments jumped 10 per cent. Shipments in and out of the country amounted to 3.4 million tonnes in fiscal year 2023-24.

The Free Press Journal tried to reach out to Afcom Cargo for their comments on the matter, but the freight company was not available for any comments.
