SpiceJet Airlines: Aircraft Fleet
SpiceJet Airlines is one of the leading low-cost carriers in India, operating a fleet of Boeing and Bombardier aircraft. The airline has a total of 100 aircraft in its fleet, with an average age of 8.5 years.
The majority of SpiceJet's fleet consists of Boeing 737 aircraft, with a total of 68 planes in service. The airline also operates 32 Bombardier Q400 aircraft, which are used for regional flights.
In 2017, SpiceJet signed a deal with Boeing for the purchase of up to 205 aircraft, including 155 737 MAX planes. However, due to the grounding of the 737 MAX worldwide, the airline has not taken delivery of any of these planes yet.
SpiceJet has also made deals with other aircraft manufacturers in the past. In 2011, the airline signed a deal with Bombardier for the purchase of 15 Q400 aircraft, with an option for an additional 15 planes. The airline later exercised this option, bringing its total Q400 fleet to 32 planes.
SpiceJet's aircraft fleet is modern and efficient, allowing the airline to offer affordable air travel to millions of passengers across India and beyond.
