SpiceJet was awarded 17 proposals and 20 new sectors under the second round of bidding for the Government of India's UDAN Regional Connectivity Scheme. Out of these 20, 15 will cater to unserved markets of Kannur (Kerala), Darbhanga (Bihar), Ozar (Nashik), Pakyong (Sikkim), Kishangarh (Rajasthan), Lilabari (Assam), Thanjavur (Tamil Nadu), Bokaro(Jharkhand) and Solapur (Maharashtra) whereas 5 will be for underserved markets of Hubli (Karnataka) and Jaisalmer (Rajasthan).
 
“SpiceJet has been one of the most enthusiastic supporters of UDAN since the very beginning. We are delighted to be a part of the regional connectivity scheme, which, we believe, is an excellent initiative of our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. We see tremendous potential in the routes that we have been awarded today and look forward to beginning operations very soon,” said Ajay Singh, CMD, SpiceJet.
 
The airline placed an order for 50 Q400s last year, deliveries for which will begin later this year.
