SpiceJet has said that it plans to bring four grounded aircraft back into service by June 15, following which more such aircraft are expected to become operational in the following weeks.
As of now, the airline has some 25 grounded aircraft, and targets to return of four of its grounded aircraft, two Boeing 737s and two Q400s, by June 15.
Last week, Spicejet had said there is no impact on its operations after the country’s civil aviation regulator deregistered three aircraft leased to the airline.
At that time, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) deregistered two grounded and one operational planes that were leased to Spicejet.
Recently, a few lessors have taken Spicejet to the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) for commencement of insolvency proceedings against the airline. The tribunal has set May 25, as the next date of hearing the plea of lessor Aircastle.
The airline has maintained that it plans to revive 25 grounded aircraft to help it capitalise and make the most of the upcoming peak travel season. (Source: Financial Express)
