SpiceJet said it passengers will have more choice to travel in Emirates' Europe network such as London, Paris, Frankfurt, Manchester and Amsterdam.
"In North and South America, SpiceJet passengers have now new destinations such as New York, Washington, Toronto, and Sao Paulo as well as Middle Eastern destinations such as Jeddah, Kuwait and Amman, operated by Emirates," the airline said in a statement.
“This new partnership should immensely benefit passengers travelling on both airlines. While SpiceJet passengers from across India will be able to enjoy seamless connectivity leveraging Emirates vast network across Europe, Africa, America and the Middle East those travelling to India on Emirates will be able to travel to 51 destinations across our domestic network,” said Ajay Singh, chairman and managing director, SpiceJet.
The Ajay Singh-led airline is making most of the opportunity to expand international operations amid ongoing Jet Airways crisis. SpiceJet last week said it will launch a slew of flights from Mumbai, connecting the financial capital to eight destinations directly. All proposed eight destinations were earlier serviced by Jet Airways from Mumbai.
SpiceJet has emerged as the top beneficiary in the Jet Airways crisis. In last two weeks, SpiceJet has announced plans to induct as many as 22 Boeing 737 NG planes. All these 22 B737 are the ones which were earlier operated by Jet Airways.
As the airline was not able to pay lease rentals due to its poor financial health, lessors applied for de-registration of the planes with the aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
