SpiceJet of India has ordered 15 Bombardier Q400s, and optioned 15.
“As India’s most preferred low fare airline, we are focused on catering to these markets which require an aircraft that could increase the reach to over 60 airports that could not be served by the larger jets and establishing our footprint in these markets,” said SpiceJet chairman said Kalanithi Maran. “After an evaluation of all the aircraft in the 60- to 80-seat category, we have selected the Q400 NextGen airliner, which combines excellent reliability, economics and passenger comfort.”
Bombardier estimates Indian airlines will take delivery of 600 20-to-149 seat airliners over the next two decades.
