SpiceJet has expanded its Boeing fleet to 20 aircrafts, with the carrier taking delivery of three B-737s from a Czech company on a short term wet-lease. This is the first fleet expansion after new promoter Ajay Singh took over the reins of SpiceJet in February.
The induction of these planes is part of the airline's plan to lease a total of seven aircraft this month as it would be operating an enhanced flight schedule to meet summer rush. These planes have been wet-leased from TVS, a firm-based out of Czech Republic.
Till now, SpiceJet had 17 Boeing 737s and 15 Bombardier Q400s in its fleet.
