The announcement from the airline comes at a time the suspension of flight operations by Jet Airways has led to additional demand in the country's civil aviation market.
Last week, SpiceJet announced the launch of new flights on international routes. The new flights will be operational on Mumbai-Riyadh-Mumbai, Mumbai-Dhaka-Mumbai, Delhi-Dhaka-Delhi and Delhi-Jeddah-Delhi routes.
The airline recently also announced a daily direct flight on Guwahati-Dhaka-Guwahati sector and 14 new domestic flights.
The country's civil aviation market has witnessed high competition over the past few months.
Domestic air passenger traffic in May increased by 2.96 per cent after a slump in April, according to the data released by aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). The domestic air traffic in May this year consisted of 12.20 million passengers as compared to 11.85 million passengers in the same month last year.
