• SpiceJet to dry lease 11 Boeing NG aircraft in next three months

    As part of its expansion plan, low cost carrier SpiceJet has planned to dry lease 11 Boeing Next Generation aircraft in the next three months.

    A senior SpiceJet official told Bloomberg TV India that the 11 new aircraft include both Boeing 737-8 and 737-9.

    Earlier, the company’s Chairman and Managing Director Ajay Singh had announced that the company is in talks with aircraft manufacturers to purchase aircrafts.

    The SpiceJet official added that the carrier will start restoring flights that had to be withdrawn due to non-availability of aircraft.

    At present, the airline has 25 B737-9 and B737-8 aircrafts in service. In addition, 14 Q-400 Bombardier aircraft are serving in tier-II and tier-III cities. Jay Novacek Authentic Jersey
