Will start receiving ordered Boeing planes from mid-2018, says SpiceJet

Stating that Indian aviation market is the fastest growing in the world, SpiceJet on Monday said that it aspires to be the most profitable airline in the country. “We have the best on-time performance in the industry. We will try to reduce costs and increase ancillary revenue,” it said. The low-cost carrier also said that it will start receiving the ordered Boeing planes from mid-2018.
Meanwhile, India’s domestic travel demand in 2016 touched nearly 100 million mark, with the Indian airlines flying a total of 998.88 lakh (99.88 million) passengers between the January-December period of 2016 as compared to 810.91 lakh in 2015, an increase of 23.18 per cent over 2015. The data showed that the low-cost carrier (LCC) SpiceJet had the highest passenger load factor (PLF) during the month under review at 93.7 per cent. “Not only have we scored a hat-trick with the best OTP (on-time performance) for the third consecutive month in a row, we have also recorded over 90 per cent passenger load factor for 21 successive months,” G.P. Gupta, Chief Administrative Officer, SpiceJet, said in a statement.
Recently SpiceJet also changed the uniform of its workforce. The uniforms retain the carrier’s signature red colour largely, while incorporating new designs. Inspired by the airline’s image of “Red.Hot.Spicy”, the new range of uniforms has been introduced to enhance the style quotient. The new range includes a unique design for each department, specifically styled to suit the different seasons. For instance, the summer wear for the female cabin crew will include a one-piece dress. The range for pilots includes a single button slim cut black suit for men.
