On February 17th 1993, the company was named as MG Express. It was an important year for MG express because they entered into technical partnership with the German flag carrier Lufthansa. The airline provided passenger and cargo services under the name of Modiluft (Modi from S.K. Modi and Luft from Lufthansa) before ceasing operations in 1996. spicejet After a long wait of 8 years the company acquired by Ajay Singh In 2004.

SpiceJet airlines ‘No Runway’ policy may boost PM Modi’s ambitious plan

Spicejet airlines is all set to boost the budget airline section with a massive boost in its budget airline services. The company is ready to dive into “No runway policy” very soon. It will boost their budget airline section massively. The airlines wants to open up the third-biggest aviation market not only in India but they are aiming for even more. Spicejet is aiming to create a platform for billions of Indians who’ve never flown before. Reason of not flying could be anything. Either because their pocket doesn’t allow it or the functional airport is far from their reach.

Recently Spicejet airlines shocked the aviation industry by a giant deal of approx $400 millions. According to the news Spicjet purchased over 100 amphibian planes from Japan’s company Setouchi Holdings Inc.” These planes are capable in landing anywhere. They can land on water, they can land on gravel or they can also land in an open field. Amphibious Kodiak planes can seat either 10 or 14 people and is capable of taking off or landing on a 300-meter strip of water or land. Additionally it has a range of 1,000 kilometers (that’s about distance between Mumbai and Bengaluru). Isn’t it amazing? This deal is going to fulfill Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambition of connecting nation by air.

Almost every airline company invests a lot in airport maintenance. It includes infrastructure, runways, terminal, control towers and service maintenance. It takes a lot of efforts and money to do so. After the recent deal of amphibian planes, Spicejet is going to lower such problems. It can make a big difference in services and their individual profits.

In the year of 2015-2016, Indian airlines served over 100 million domestic passengers. This makes India the third largest market in aviation after USA & China.
