Eyeing growing passenger demand, SpiceJet looks at enhancing capacity for peak winter season
To cater to the increased passenger demand, SpiceJet will induct 10 Boeing 737 aircraft into its fleet. The airline has already signed a lease agreement for the ten planes which will start joining the fleet from September 2023. These 10 B737’s include five 737 Max aircraft.
In the intervening period, SpiceJet is working on restoring and reviving its grounded aircraft which will start returning back to service soon.
Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet, said, “There has been a significant surge in passenger demand and we are hopeful that this trend of increased demand will continue in the latter part of the year as well. Accordingly, SpiceJet has been planning capacity addition to cater to the growing needs of the Indian aviation market. We will be inducting ten B737 aircraft between September-October 2023. The induction of these planes, which coincides with the peak travel season in India, will help us launch new routes and strengthen our presence on existing ones.”
