India's new all-cargo airline, Pradhaan Air Express, commenced commercial operations on 1st October on the DEL-BOM-DEL route. The airline received the world's first A320 converted freighter in July and aptly named it 'PEHALWAN', a Hindi term meaning wrestler or a strongman.
New Delhi Airport witnessed the landing of the A320 P2F (Passenger-to-Freighter conversion) as the airline is all set to take the Indian Air Freight Industry to new heights.
Pradhaan Air Express A320-P2F:
The A320-P2F offers up to 174 cbm capacity with a gross payload of nearly 21 tons. The cargo plane with a fully palletized main deck will offer charter capacity to domestic shippers and freight forwarders on domestic and international routes. The converted freighter will also be available for on-demand cargo charters.
Current Service Offering:
- On-demand Round-trip Charters
- One-Way Charters

We are confident of playing our part in the Government's vision of increasing Air Cargo to 10 million tonnes - says a social post of the airline.
The commencement of commercial operations was a significant milestone in the journey of the new cargo airline in India and for the world's first A320-P2F. International flights are to start soon.
The airline intends to add more freighters to its fleet by next year. India's new all-cargo airline is set to leverage the boom in the air cargo industry and push the Indian Cargo Market in Global Rankings.
