TORONTO (PTI): In its ambitious attempts to connect Tier II and Tier III cities of India, the SpiceJet on Friday received a brand new fleet of the latest Q400 NextGen turboprop aircraft from Bombardier, beginning a new era for Indian aviation industry.
The airline will launch its services from September 21 with the new aircraft that can accommodate 78 passengers each and is said to be the best short-haul plane in the world.

"Our focus is on Tier II and Tier III cities to ensure affordable journey to common people," Chairman Kalanithi Maran said.

The cities which will be connected with the brand new aircraft are Aurangabad, Bhopal, Indore, Mangalore, Rajahmundry, Tirupati and Vijayawada.

SpiceJet will also include routes within its existing destinations using the Q400 aircraft and will operate direct flights from Hyderabad to Goa, Madurai, Nagpur and Pune and Bangalore to Vizag.

The air carrier will also be flying on three currently unconnected routes. Hyderabad-Mangalore, Hyderabad-Aurangabad and Vizag-Tirupati.

For the 30 aircraft, SpiceJet is likely to pay around USD 900 million.
