The company's scrip jumped 8.54 per cent to close at Rs 109.90 on the BSE. During the day, it rose sharply by 10.61 per cent to Rs 112.

The company's market valuation also rose by Rs 518.9 crore to Rs 6,590.90 crore.
The announcement comes at a time when airfares have been on an upswing across India for the past few weeks due to a sharp decline in the number of flights, primarily caused by grounding of around 90 per cent of cash-strapped Jet Airways' 119-aircraft fleet.
"SpiceJet will induct 16 Boeing 737-800 NG aircraft on dry lease and has applied to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) for a no-objection certificate (NOC) to import the aircraft," the airline said.
Under dry lease, the lessor provides the airline with the aircraft but without any crew member, while under wet lease, the lessor provides the aircraft along with complete crew.
Meanwhile, InterGlobe Aviation's shares rose by 2.11 per cent to close at Rs 1,432.15 apiece and Jet Airways (India)'s scrip ended flat at Rs 260.45, up 0.02 per cent on the BSE.
