Quikjet Airlines (QO, Bengaluru International) is relaunching its own freighter flights with a leased B737-800(BCF) about to commence revenue services. The airline took delivery of VT-AAZ (formerly N120MN) (msn 30643) in August while reapplying for its air operator's certificate (AOC) after a change in its shareholder structure. That AOC has now been issued and is valid until December 2027.

On Friday, December 2, VT-AAZ began undertaking a series of flights, with a Hyderabad International - Coimbatore - Hyderabad - Bengaluru International - Hyderabad rotation that day. FlightRadar24 ADS-B data shows the plane has flown a significant number of sectors within India since then. The 20.74-year-old jet comes on a lease from Arena Aviation Capital via the MAM Aircraft Leasing 30643 (Ireland) DAC special purpose vehicle.

Founded in 2007, QuikJet formerly operated an ATR72-200(F), B737-300(F), and B737-400(SF) but suspended in-house flying in 2017 when it retired its B737-400SF. At the time, QuikJet was majority owned by ASL Aviation Holdings but that group has since sold down its stake to minority status and now supply-chain mogul Cyrus Guzder owns 51% of the business. Guzder has spoken of his desire to target the overnight express freight market.

ch-aviation has recently reported that QuikJet has a second B737-800(BDSF), N110MN (msn 28382), undergoing conversion at Jinan, China. The conversion process is now complete and that plane was ferried to Hyderabad on November 28. The second aircraft has been registered on the Indian aircraft register as VT-BAZ.
