SpiceJet has also signed a let­ter of in­tent (LOI) with Bom­bardier Com­mer­cial Air­craft for up to 50 Q400 tur­bo­prop air­lin­ers and pur­chase rights on an ad­di­tional 25 air­craft. “I am de­lighted to an­nounce this new or­der for 50 Q400 planes. SpiceJet op­er­ates In­dia’s largest re­gional fleet and is the only or­gan­ised op­er­a­tor in this space,” said Ajay Singh, Chair­man and Man­ag­ing Direc­tor, SpiceJet. SpiceJet op­er­ates a fleet of 35 Next-Gen­er­a­tion 737s and 20 Bom­bardier Q400s. Since 2010, SpiceJet has taken de­liv­ery of 15 Q400 air­craft and the air­line cur­rently op­er­ates 20 Q400 air­craft in a 78-seat con­fig­u­ra­tion to do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions. When con­cluded, this fleet ex­pan­sion will pro­vide SpiceJet the abil­ity to grow prof­itably and lever­age the ro­bust de­mand fore­cast in the world’s fastest grow­ing re­gional avi­a­tion mar­ket.
