SpiceJet will take delivery of ten new aircraft in Sept. 2023

SpiceJet, India's low-cost carrier, announced on Friday that it will add 10 Boeing 737 aircraft to its fleet between September and October to meet rising passenger demand. The aircraft would feature five 737 Max aircraft, according to the Gurugram-based airline, without specifying the list price. According to the SpiceJet website, their fleet had 91 aircraft as of June 2023. It was unclear if the total included the 25 planes that had been grounded. 


The low-cost airline is attempting to resurrect the aircraft fleet, with the most recent agreement being a lease of 20 engines with FTAI Aviation. SpiceJet stated that the grounded planes will resume operation shortly. "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," SpiceJet said in a statement.


A robust post-COVID travel resurgence has helped airline operators record profits, prompting competitor IndiGo's Interglobe Aviation to plan capacity increases and dial-up orders to meet growing air travel demand.
