SpiceJet will be the first and only Indian budget carrier to launch daily direct flights on the Mumbai-Colombo, Mumbai-Dhaka, Mumbai-Riyadh, Mumbai-Hong Kong and Mumbai-Kathmandu sectors. The airline will deploy its Boeing 737 NG aircraft on the new routes.
"SpiceJet will be the only Indian budget carrier operating on a majority of routes that we have announced today, thus providing leisure and business travellers with more options to choose from," said Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet.
Last week, the airline announced six new domestic flights connecting Mumbai with Kolkata, Chennai and Varanasi. While its international flight to Bangkok will start from May 17, the domestic flights are effective April 18.
