SpiceJet Obtains Haj Flight Permissions from Seven Indian Cities, Strengthening Revenue Streams


SpiceJet announces the acquisition of flight rights for Haj operations from seven Indian cities, namely Srinagar, Gaya, Guwahati, Bhopal, Indore, Aurangabad, and Vijayawada.

Haj operations have proven to be a revenue source for SpiceJet, underscoring its dedication to serving diverse passenger segments. In the current fiscal year, SpiceJet generated INR 337 crore in revenue from Haj operations, operating flights from five Indian cities. The airline anticipates an even higher revenue projection for the ongoing fiscal year.

The first phase of Haj operations is set to commence on May 9, with flights to Medina. SpiceJet is preparing to ensure a seamless and comfortable travel experience for Haj pilgrims originating from the designated cities.

In the previous year, SpiceJet added three wide-body aircraft exclusively for Haj operations. This year, the airline plans to continue this strategy, with a particular focus on enhancing services for flights originating from Srinagar.

Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director of SpiceJet, expressed delight, stating, “Securing flight rights for Haj operations from seven prominent Indian cities is a significant achievement. Haj has consistently been a crucial segment for SpiceJet, and we remain committed to delivering best-in-class services for the pilgrims. Our goal is to guarantee a smooth and hassle-free travel experience for all passengers. We eagerly anticipate serving the Haj pilgrims and contributing to their sacred journey.”
