Spicejet to add five more 90-seater Bombardier Q400s to fleet

Mumbai: Budget carrier SpiceJet Tuesday said it plans to expand its regional jet fleet to 32 aircraft by adding five more 90-seater Bombardier Q400s.
The move is aimed at augmenting capacity in the domestic markets, especially on regional routes, following the near collapse of Jet Airways, which has resulted in massive surge in airfares besides mismatch in demand and supply amid peak travel season.
Three of these planes will join the fleet in the next ten days while the remaining two will be inducted by June, SpiceJet said in a statement.
The Gurugram-based no-frills carrier had last week announced dry leasing of 16 Boeing 737-800 NG for the carrier.
