IF SpiceJet buys/leases Jet's aircraft from lessors,

1. How long does it take to change registrations, insurance etc? Is there any advantage other than delivery time in leasing Jet's grounded aircraft in India vs. some other B737 outside India.

2. SpiceJet has history of taking wet leased aircrafts without any change of livery. Will they waste time to repaint the aircraft or just put up stickers and start flying?

SpiceJet has opportunity to cash in with new pilot recruits and aircraft from Jet Airways, while Indigo will take up to 6 months for new recruit training.


Off topic:

My home airport RAJ is doomed:

1. With demise of Jet Airways, my home airport RAJ will now have only 2 flights from AI - 1 each to DEL and BOM.

2. Jet had 4 flights a day and used to charge nothing less than 6000 for 50 min flight to BOM, now nothing.

3. New "international" greenfield airport is awarded to Reliance Infrastructure - not sure if they have working capital for the project.

I hope SG leases some B737-700 also for us. Else we'll be dependent on AI's A319 only.

If market conditions demand it, then other airlines will step in and take over.

SpiceJet official says to expand cargo fleet to 5 aircraft this year

Apr 8

SpiceJet Ltd, which had earlier planned to operate four aircraft in its cargo fleet by the end of March, faces headwinds with the airline now expected to induct the planes this year.

Despite the delay, SpiceJet plans to take the total count of its cargo aircraft to at least five this year, a senior company official said.

As on December end, the company operated a single Boeing 737-700 cargo aircraft which was launched on Sep 10 under the SpiceXpress brand.

"Soon we will be adding four more aircraft," the official said. SpiceJet's cargo fleet will comprise three Boeing 737-700 and two 737-800, the official added.

"SpiceJet plans to have a dedicated air cargo fleet starting with the first four freighters scheduled to be inducted by March 2019," the company had earlier mentioned in its 2017-18 annual report but the airline missed the deadline.

SpiceJet is yet to officially respond to a query about its current cargo fleet strength.

SpiceXpress operates as a separate business unit under SpiceJet Ltd but avails common pool of resources like pilots, engineers, ground staff, and airport infrastructure of the company's passenger airline business.

The company will acquire the cargo aircraft through operating leases in order to maintain low capital expenditure.

The cargo operations of the company cover Delhi, Bengaluru, Guwahati, Hong Kong, Kabul and Amritsar and it mostly transports perishable goods.

SpiceJet also offers cargo capacity on its passenger aircraft fleet, which comprises Boeing 737-700, 737-800, 737-900ER, Boeing 737 MAX 8 and Bombardier Q400. The company's passenger fleet comprises 75 aircraft.

SpiceJet's passenger aircraft fleet handles about 500 tn of cargo per day, and with a dedicated cargo fleet, the company aims to scale it up to 900 tn per day in a phased manner with the addition of more cargo aircraft.

The company aims revenue maximisation through its ancillary services, such as dedicated cargo operations, as profit margins through passenger flight operations remain squeezed due to tough competition and high operating cost such as fuel expenses.

SpiceJet is currently the only scheduled airline to offer dedicated cargo services.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-spicejet-boeing/indias-spicejet-to-lease-16-boeing-737s-to-fill-gap-as-groundings-push-up-fares-idUSKCN1RO0D9

SpiceJet to lease 16 Boeing 737s to fill gap as groundings push up fares

April 12, 2019

SpiceJet Ltd said on Friday it planned to lease a “first lot” of 16 Boeing Co 737-800s to help fill a gap in aviation capacity that ratings agency ICRA said has pushed up fares by 30 to 40 percent since September.

SpiceJet had canceled some flights due to the grounding of its 12 737 MAX planes after Ethiopian Airlines’ deadly March 10 crash. However, the bulk of the reduction, which ICRA said removed 15 percent of market capacity, is due to Jet Airways Ltd grounding more than three-quarters of its fleet as a result of funding problems.

“The sudden reduction of aviation capacity has created a challenging environment in the sector,” SpiceJet Chairman Ajay Singh said in a statement. “SpiceJet is committed to working closely with the government authorities to augment capacity and minimize passenger inconvenience.”

India’s civil aviation minister Suresh Prabhu has directed the civil aviation secretary to review issues related to Jet Airways and take steps to minimize the inconvenience to passengers and ensure their safety, the minister said in a Tweet on Friday.

India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation has de-registered 11 737-800s that had been leased by Jet Airways on request from lessors, the agency’s website said, and another 14 requests for de-registration remain pending.

SpiceJet did not say whether it planned to lease planes that had previously been flown by Jet.

SpiceJet laps up overseas routes vacated by Jet Airways; to fly to 7 new cities

April 16, 2019

Suspension of Jet Airways’ international operations have attracted other carriers to lap up the vacant slots on some of the key routes, including Mumbai-Colombo, Mumbai-Kathmandu, Mumbai-Hong Kong, Mumbai-Bangkok, etc.

SpiceJet announced on Monday that it will begin services on these routes next month onwards. Other destinations to which SpiceJet will start or add services from Mumbai are Dhaka, Riyadh, Dubai and Jeddah.

It is pertinent to note that routes such as Mumbai-Colombo, Mumbai-Kathmandu and Mumbai-Hong Kong were sectors on which Jet Airways was the only Indian airline to operate.

SpiceJet said on Thursday that it was planning to induct another six of Jet’s Boeing 737 800 Next Generation on dry lease within the next 10 days. The six aircraft being leased will be taken for periods varying from two to six years.

This the second time in less than a week that SpiceJet has decided to lease the Boeing 737 aircraft which were earlier registered and being flown by Jet Airways and this decision of leasing six more of Jet’s Boeing 737 aircraft comes less than 24 hours after the airline announced a temporary suspension of all operations on Wednesday night.

On April 12, SpiceJet had said it was inducting 16 Boeing 737 NG that were earlier registered in the name of Jet Airways.

SpiceJet has also announced that it will launch 24 new daily flights connecting Mumbai and Delhi with other cities on its domestic network.

In a statement, the airline said this will includes flights on the Mumbai-Hyderabad-Mumbai, Mumbai-Coimbatore-Mumbai and Mumbai-Mangaluru-Mumbai routes apart from enhancing flights on the Delhi-Bengaluru-Delhi route.

https://gulfnews.com/business/aviation/emirates-spicejet-sign-codeshare-deal-1.63480364

Emirates, SpiceJet sign codeshare deal

April 22, 2019

Emirates Airline announced on Monday it has signed a deal to enter into a codeshare agreement with SpiceJet, the Indian carrier that has grown for its low-cost model.

The deal comes India’s Jet Airways, which was once one of the top airlines in the country, suspends all its flights due to a cash crisis that has reopened discussions about the challenges of operating in the Indian market.

Analysts say that the rise of low-cost carriers such as SpiceJet in a market with price-conscious passengers presented a challenge to Jet’s very model as more people opt for cheaper fares.

For Emirates, the codeshare with SpiceJet will provide it with an additional 67 weekly connections between Dubai and six of what it described as “fast growing destinations in India.”

These include Amritsar, Jaipur, Pune, Mangalore, Madurai, and Calicut.

The deal is still subject to necessary government approvals, Emirates said.

This is a back door entry for EK to serve new cities which are not in the current bilateral. Only CCJ (Kozhikode) should be allowed, but addition of other cities should be negotiated with a new bilateral, which allows Indian carriers better access to DXB.

Even TK/Indigo code share also appears to be questionable, with the new code share TK will have 21 flights to India (14 on its own metal and 7 on Indigo), and the current bilateral is restricted only to 14 flights by airlines of Turkey and 14 by Indian carriers.

SpiceJet plane overshoots runway; operations at Shirdi airport hit

Apr 29, 2019

A SpiceJet aircraft on Monday overshot the touched-down point while landing at the airport in Maharashtra’s Shirdi and veered off the runway. In the wake of the incident, all operations were brought to a standstill, said Dhiren Bhosale, the manager of the Shirdi airport.

He added that all the passengers and the crew are safe. Meanwhile, efforts are being made to resume operations as soon as possible.

In a statement, the airline said that a “SpiceJet B737-800 aircraft operated SG 946 from Delhi to Shirdi. While landing at Shirdi, the aircraft overshot the runway. Passengers and crew are safe and are being deplaned normally”.

The airline added that both the pilots of SG 946 flight have been grounded, pending a probe into the matter. The incident occurred at around 4:30 pm.

"A SpiceJet aircraft shot off the runway by about 50 meters and skidded off. There is no injury to any passenger and the crew, though. Our first priority is to evacuate passengers without compromising their safety," Bhosale told PTI.

There was no information on the number of passengers and crew aboard the B737- 800 aircraft.

Meanwhile, pictures are suggesting that a part of the nosewheel is inside the ground and the aircraft removal will take some more time.

VT-JGB was a B737-700 that left 9W's fleet a long time ago, and has since been scrapped.

VT-SIZ is a 737-700.

JetKonnect's B837-700 - VT-SIZ and VT-SJA were the only aircraft that flew to Rajkot (RAJ).

So now we hope of SpiceJet starting service to Rajkot pretty soon. Very Happy

Whatever for?

Why don't they stick to the low-cost model that has been working for them so well?

Or has some of the erstwhile 9W's cluelessness infected them through their aircraft?

Must we get prepared for SpiceKonnect and SpiceLight now?

These are on the ex-9W a/c. They anyways come with 12 J class seats and SG isnt re-configuring the a/c. So make the most of it.

VT-JBE -> VT-SYE B737-800W
So I'm gonna take a guess and say VT-SYH is the ex VT-JBH, could be wrong here though...

SpiceJet has about 20 ex-Jet B737s and plans to double this number.
SpiceJet currently operates 19 ex-Jet B737s and plans to take 40 to 50 the now-grounded airline’s planes.

SpiceJet adds 100th plane to fleet, 4th domestic airline to do

MAY 26, 2019

SpiceJet on Sunday announced the induction of a Boeing 737, taking its fleet size to 100 aircraft.

SpiceJet is the fourth domestic airline to achieve the feat after national carrier Air India, now defunct Jet Airways and rival IndiGo.

Eight domestic carriers - Air India, IndiGo, SpiceJet, GoAir, Air India Express, Vistara, AirAsia and Alliance together have 595 planes in their fleet at the moment.

SpiceJet in a release said it has added some 23 planes in the last one month alone.

“Who could have thought that from the brink of closure in December 2014, SpiceJet would have a 100-aircraft fleet in 2019,” SpiceJet chairman and managing director Ajay Singh said on the induction of 100th plane in the fleet.

The Gurugram-based budget carrier now has 68 Boeing 737s, 30 Bombardier Q-400s and two B737 freighters.

“SpiceJet has added 23 planes and over a hundred new flights, most of them connecting the key metros of Mumbai and Delhi, in just over a month’s time,” the airline said.

Of the 595 planes, IndiGo has 230, Air India 128 and SpiceJet 100.

SpiceJet plans to add eight more planes from Jet’s grounded fleet

30 May 2019

SpiceJet Ltd, which added its 100th aircraft in May, has inducted 22 Boeing planes that were withdrawn from grounded airline Jet Airways (India) Ltd’s fleet by lessors, and plans to add eight more such planes in the next two weeks, a top company official said.

“In the next fortnight, we expect to add another eight Boeing 737 (Next Generation) NG which were being operated by Jet Airways," Kiran Koteshwar, chief financial officer (CFO) of SpiceJet, said in an interview. “We didn’t incur any additional capex on these aircraft."

The 30 Boeing 737 NG planes that were earlier operated by Jet Airways are being added to SpiceJet’s fleet on short-term leases, with a maximum lease tenure of 24 months, Koteshwar said.

“The capacity vacated by Jet Airways had to be filled by someone else. Mathematically, we have advanced our expansion programme, which was supposed to happen in 2021 to 2019, by inducting the new capacity," he added.

Spicejet, which operates about 584 daily flights, expects the additional capacity to cater to higher demand during the April-June quarter, considered the busy season for air travel due to summer holidays. “Our increased capacity will help us cater to the higher demand during the June quarter," said Koteshwar.

Alongside, the airline also expects to get all its grounded 737 Max planes back in operation by July end, Koteshwar said. “Going by the guidance given by Boeing, the general sense is all necessary work has been done in this regard and regulatory permissions are being awaited. We are confident that it will take a maximum of two months for the entire certification process to be done," Koteshwar added.

“The plan is to eventually replace all Boeing 737 planes with more fuel efficient Boeing 737 Max planes," Koteshwar said. “Once the Max programme normalizes (Boeing 737 Max are allowed to fly), Max aircraft will replace all NG’s in the next 18-24 months."

SpiceJet examines taking over widebody jets previously operated by Jet

JUNE 1, 2019

SpiceJet Ltd is examining the prospect of taking over widebody jets previously operated by Jet Airways Ltd, but initial studies show they need significant maintenance work, its chairman said on Saturday.

SpiceJet, which operates narrowbody and turboprop planes, does not have firm plans to become a widebody operator with longer-range flights in the wake of Jet’s collapse in April, SpiceJet Chairman Ajay Singh said.

“Certainly a gap has been created and there seems to be an opportunity but it is also a business that we don’t know very much about. A higher risk business,” he told Reuters on the sidelines of an airline industry conference in Seoul.

“We are exploring it. We’ll see. If it looks like it is significantly profitable we can do it.”

Leasing or buying widebody jets not previously operated by Jet are another possibility, he said.

How SpiceJet became the biggest beneficiary of the slots vacated by Jet Airways

In a recent annual general meeting, airline group International Air Transport Association (IATA) unanimously passed a resolution urging governments to adhere to global slot allocation guidelines and it has come at a time when the rules have been making news in India.

IATA has been on the forefront for demanding a single slot coordinator in the country. India is one of the handful of countries that do not follow the international slot allocation timelines for its domestic schedule, opting for its own calendar and process instead. As Jet Airways suspended operations, nearly 750 slots were left vacant at airports, which were being distributed across airlines by a committee which included the regulator (DGCA), representatives of private airport operators and those of state-run Airports Authority of India.

However, the committee came up with a set of rules that were not in sync with the World Slot Guidelines (WSG). There were reasons.
