SpiceJet has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Air India, whereby the latter has succeeded in roping-in a private airline to use the maintenance repair overhaul (MRO) facility at the SEZ in Nagpur.
Spicejet will send its aircraft from the fleet of 42 planes to Nagpur MRO in immediate future. The first Spicejet aircraft is expected to roll in for MRO facility within two months. The company is also in process of acquiring 100 more aircraft in the days to come.
SpiceJet was among the first private companies that stepped into the Indian aviation sector. The airline was launched with an objective to deliver the lowest air fares with the highest consumer value, to price sensitive consumers.
