SpiceJet on Thursday announced the launch of new flights on domestic and international routes. SpiceJet announced a daily direct flight on Mumbai-Jeddah-Mumbai sector and six new flights connecting Mumbai, according to a press release shared by the private sector airline. The new flights to Jeddah will start from July 5 and the domestic flights will start from May 20, SpiceJet said in a statement. The announcement from SpiceJet comes at a time when full-service carrier Jet Airways has suspended its operations temporarily, leading to additional demand for flights in the country's civil aviation market.
SpiceJet also announced a special all-inclusive fare of Rs 12,399 on the Mumbai-Jeddah and Rs 15,399 on the Jeddah-Mumbai route.
"The new domestic flights will help in minimizing the passenger inconvenience caused due to the sudden shortage in capacity within the Indian aviation industry," Shilpa Bhatia, chief sales and revenue officer, SpiceJet.
