After adding 100th aircraft, SpiceJet to add 8 more from Jet’s grounded fleet

After adding 100th aircraft to its fleet recently, Spice Jet is planning to add eight more Boeing planes in the next two weeks that were withdrawn from grounded Jet Airways’s fleet by lessors. “In the next fortnight, we expect to add another eight Boeing 737 (Next Generation) NG which were being operated by Jet Airways. We didn’t incur any additional capex on these aircraft,” said Kiran Koteshwar, CFO, SpiceJet in an interview to Mint. The 30 Boeing 737 NG planes that were earlier operated by Jet Airways are being added to SpiceJet’s fleet on short-term leases, with a maximum lease tenure of 24 months, added Koteshwar. The airline’s current fleet consists of 68 Boeing 737 (including 13 Boeing 737 Max planes), 30 Bombardier Q-400s and two B737 freighters.
