Ajay Singh, the chairman and managing director of SpiceJet, has said, SpiceJet has been on a spectacular growth journey and this quarter, in particular, has been very special for us. We added 32 aircraft to our fleet expanding at a pace unprecedented for a sector plagued by crisis showcasing our robust business model and proven operational capabilities.
We are happy that we were able to minimise passenger inconvenience by quickly filling the capacity gap created in India's aviation sector. The results would have been vastly better but for the painful grounding of the MAX aircraft. We look forward to their swift return to service in the near future that will help SpiceJet increase its margins and provide a superior level of service.
