SpiceJet seeks planes from other sources after India grounds 737 MAX fleet
The airline was forced to ground its 12 Boeing Co 737 MAX 8 planes by India`s aviation watchdog due to safety concerns.
SpiceJet Ltd said on Friday it was in talks with lessors globally to induct aircraft, in an effort to fill a gap after the grounding of its MAX fleet.
The airline was forced to ground its 12 Boeing Co 737 MAX 8 planes by India`s aviation watchdog due to safety concerns after an Ethiopian Airlines plane crash that killed 157 people earlier this month.
The low-cost carrier could also benefit from cash-strapped Jet Airways being forced to ground planes, and is in talks with lessors to lease some of those aircraft, a person with direct knowledge of the matter had told Reuters earlier this week.
