Blue Dart Aviation (or Blue Dart) is a Chennai-Based cargo airline operating cargo flights to major destinations across India and some neighboring countries. German courier company Deutsche Post (Also known as DHL) owns a 70% stake in the airline through its subsidiary Blue Dart Express. It is one of the few cargo airlines based in India
Blue Dart Aviation Ltd. was incorporated in May 1994 as a 100% subsidiary of Blue Dart Express Limited and launched its operations with a fleet of 2 Boeing 737-200 freighters on the 17th of June 1996. Blue Dart Aviation Ltd. was created primarily to support the growing demands of Blue Dart Express Ltd.
Two Boeing 757 freighters have been inducted into the fleet from June 2006. It became the first airline in India to operate the Boeing 757 freighter
Today, Blue Dart Aviation has a fleet of six Boeing 757, providing a network payload of 504 tonnes across 74 route connections each night.
After retiring their Boeing 737 freighters in 2014, the B757 became the backbone of the airline, serving multiple destinations across India in that aircraft.
Why we need this:
India is known for some big and major carriers like Air India, IndiGo, Jet Airways, Spicejet, etc. but the smaller airlines are not well known to people and certainly not the cargo airlines of India. The addition of this livery will make it the first Indian cargo Airline in Infinite Flight. Also, people would love to hop on this aircraft and livery and take it for a spin across India :)
With the 757-200 rework coming in the 20.3 update, we would absolutely love to see Blue Dart’s 757 freighter in Infinite Flight as the first Indian cargo livery.
