In an effort to enhance its transportation network and enable faster deliveries to customers, Amazon India announced the launch of Amazon Air in India on Monday. With this, it became the first e-commerce company in the country to come up with a dedicated air cargo network. 
In the initial stage, Amazon Air’s two aircraft will transport customer shipments between four cities — Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Delhi and Mumbai. 
India will be the first country, outside Europe and North America, where Amazon has launched its dedicated air cargo services. The company said that looking at the longer term, it will be focussing on all the three modes — road, rail and air — to speed up the delivery mechanism.
