Spicejet has ordered 30 new 737-800s from Boeing, in a deal worth $2.3 billion.
The Indian budget carrier currently operates a fleet of 24 aircraft, made up of B737-800s and B737-900ERs.
Neil Mills, SpiceJet’s CEO, said the airline has decided to expand its fleet of 737-800 aircraft as the model “supports the business plan for low-cost carriers”.
He said: "The aviation sector in India is recovering and business and leisure travel is on the rise.”
The airline plans to expand its domestic network, and launch new international destinations, said Mills.
The new aircraft will feature Boeing’s new “Sky” interior, which the aircraft manufacturer said has “sculpted sidewalls and window reveals", as well as larger overhead lockers.
