Why the choice of MAN? I believe it is the same person posting this news here and at A.net. Time will tell.

MAN has likely to have been chosen as itís a huge, unserved market and MAN are offering good incentives to get the route, and Mumbai, served.

The source is good too, and I notice on social media, Spicejet is hardly denying the news, instead even thanking someone for wishing good luck.

If it is MAN then a huge fail for Jet/VS. They should at least launch MAN-BOM asap. VS is very strong in MAN (FF wise) and 9W in BOM. The unfortuante thing is neither 9W or VS can afford a loss making route. Delta is booming in the US and could support a marginal route (rightly, MAN-BOM is not DL's priority). That said I am glad 9W launched that third flight LHR-BOM. Very convenient timings IMHO.

SpiceJet mulls own seaplane production

SpiceJet is mulling establishing a seaplane manufacturing plant in the Indian state of West Bengal in order to produce aircraft which would then be deployed on thinner domestic routes, The Times of India has reported.

"We would like to fly these seaplanes in the state to boost tourism as well to explore the possibility of manufacturing them in the state," company's chairman Ajay Singh said during the Bengal Global Business Summit 2018 earlier this week.

In mid-December, the airline concluded a six-month trial period of its Quest Kodiak seaplane operations. Singh told reporters at that time that SpiceJet intends to launch scheduled services to underserved regions in India within twelve months using such aircraft.

The tests have been conducted in cooperation with Setouchi Holdings, a Japanese company which since 2015 has owned Quest Aircraft (Sandpoint). In October 2017, the carrier signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Setouchi regarding the purchase of at least a hundred Kodiaks. The potential value of the deal exceeds USD400 million.

It is not clear whether SpiceJet is mulling manufacturing a new type of seaplanes in India or rather is aiming to establish a Quest assembly plant.

SpiceJet announces 20 new non-stop flights

Jan 29, 2018

SpiceJet has announced 20 new non-stop flights on domestic routes -- including Chennai-Mangalore and Guwahati-Chennai routes -- and will add frequency on many routes starting February 11.

The airline is all set to introduce daily direct flights on the Bengaluru-Rajahmundry, Chennai-Mangalore and Guwahati-Chennai routes and a direct flight between Bengaluru-Tirupati which would operate on all days except Tuesdays.

SpiceJet will become the only carrier to operate between Kolkata and Jabalpur and Bengaluru and Puducherry with daily direct flights.

The airline will also enhance its operations on the Chennai-Vishakhapatnam (second frequency), Kolkata-Vishakhapatnam (second frequency), Chennai-Vijayawada (third frequency) and Bengaluru-Chennai (fifth frequency) routes with non-stop additional frequencies. While the airline will operate daily flights between Chennai and Vishakhapatnam, Kolkata and Vishakhapatnam and Chennai and Vijayawada, services between Bengaluru and Chennai will be operational on all days except Tuesdays.

SpiceJet, which is the largest regional player in the country, will serve on all the routes with its Bombardier Q400 aircraft except for the Chennai - Guwahati route where it will deploy its Boeing 737 aircraft.

SpiceJet mulls seaplanes on Brahmaputra

Feb 3, 2018

SpiceJet on Saturday said it is exploring possibilities to introduce seaplanes on Brahmaputra in Assam, making the river the largest waterways in the world.

On the air network, the Singh said "We propose to connect Assam to Thailand, Myanmar and other ASEAN countries. This will surely help the region grow economically."
