SpiceJet to lease 16 additional 737-800’s

SpiceJet has announced that it will dry lease 16 additional Boeing 737-800s. The airline has applied to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation for a No Objection Certificate to import the aircraft.

The airline has not identified the source of the lease.

SpiceJet currently has 13 737 MAX 8s grounded and has indicated that the recent troubles of Jet Airways spurred the decision to increase their fleet.

Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet
“This is the first lot of Boeing 737s that we are inducting in our fleet. The sudden reduction of aviation capacity has created a challenging environment in the sector. SpiceJet is committed to working closely with the government authorities to augment capacity and minimize passenger inconvenience.”
