The carrier operates a fleet of Boeing 737s, Q-400s, and is the country’s largest regional player operating 63 daily flights under RCS.
“Strengthening regional connectivity between metros and underserved cities is at the heart of SpiceJet’s mission and vision and we are delighted to add the beautiful city of Bhavnagar to our fast expanding domestic network," said Shilpa Bhatia, chief commercial officer at SpiceJet, in a statement.
"SpiceJet is well aligned and fully committed to aid the recovery of air travel and realise India’s dream of having a strong, stable and progressive aviation market by constantly adding new routes and destinations," Bhatia added.
