SpiceJet could buy more 737s

Low-cost carrier SpiceJet is in the market for new airplanes, as it considers expanding its route network outside its home base of India.

SpiceJet’s chief commercial officer told Dow Jones Newswires that the airline is in talks with both Boeing and Airbus about new jets.  “We are evaluating the future,” he said. “We have not taken a decision. It is at a very preliminary stage.”

SpiceJet launched in 2005, and currently operates a fleet of 19 737s — a mix of -800s and -900ERs — all built in Renton by District 751 members. The airline has nine more ‘Three-Sevens on order.

SpiceJet hopes to win Indian government approval to expand its route network into Nepal, Bangladesh, the Maldives and Sri Lanka.
