SpiceJet is reportedly likely to place an order for the Boeing 737 Max-10 planes at the aircraft’s debut at the Paris Air Show later this month, thus becoming one of its launch customers globally. The Max 10 is the latest, longer version of the narrow-bodied Boeing 737 Max series of planes, competitors to Airbus A320 family. The orders would be part of airline major’s expansion plans following a miraculous turnaround led by Ajay Singh last year.
SpiceJet was among the first private companies that stepped into the Indian aviation sector. The airline, which has a fleet of 49 planes, operates an average of 342 flights daily.
