SpiceJet considering a US $ 4 billion order

SpiceJet, India’s second largest low cost airline owned by the Chennai-based Sun Group, is in an advanced stage of finalising a near US $ 4 billion (over Rs 25,000 crore) for buying nearly 40 aircraft from Boeing company for the Max series of planes. Boeing’s Max series is said to be fuel efficient and its first flight on Indian skies is reportedly going to take place in early 2016.

Boeing Max, as per manufacturers claim, can effect a 14 per cent higher fuel efficiency than its current fleet of 737 Next Gen aircraft. Max aircraft also has better interiors with larger room for cabin baggage, larger view windows and LED lighting.
