Spicejet is all set for Guanghzou

Spicejet has been working on a maverick strategy to open up new routes rather than just operating on the tried and tested ones. They were the first ones to set up operations to Pondicherry with a Bombardier Dash Q400 a few days back, and opened up ops to Kabul, Male and Riyadh, places not frequented by your everyday airline in India. The strategy to work with new airports is working out for them it seems, with profits back in place this year.

Now, they fly a Boeing 737 fleet (800 and 900ER series), and a Q400 fleet. They are going with a Boeing 737 to Guanghzou (South China) with a Delhi (DEL) – Guanghzou (CAN) flight ready to go this Friday, four times a week. This route was only serviced by a China Southern flight till so far, who looking at the competition, has doubled their service on this route.


The flight schedule will look as follows:


Considering SpiceJet operates an all-economy configuration, there will be no special seats on the plane except for the much coveted row 1 which has lovely legroom, but the 6 hours flight time requires a little more comfort than SpiceJet has in store for us. However, with competitive pricing, I assume, the route should see good loads from the trading & industrial community which frequents China. As per the news reports, SpiceJet is also planning to go to Hong Kong, Makau and Chengdu.
