Signs Maintenance Agreement with Bombardier
Low-cost Indian carrier SpiceJet has taken delivery of the first
two of 15 Q400 NextGen turboprop aircraft ordered in December 2010.
SpiceJet will use its Q400 NextGen aircraft for high-frequency,
point-to-point services to regional cities, complementing its
larger jet aircraft that connect major Indian cities. SpiceJet
currently serves 22 destinations in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
"SpiceJet's order was a breakthrough for our Q400 NextGen
turboprop in the Indian market, and Bombardier's portfolio of
commercial aircraft and customer services continues to be well
positioned to support the development of India's airline network,"
said Chet Fuller, Senior Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Asset
Management, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft, during a ceremony held
yesterday at Bombardier Aerospace's Toronto facility, where the
Q400 NextGen aircraft is manufactured.
"As India experiences substantial growth, many cities and
industrial towns remain underserved," said Kalanithi Maran,
Chairman, SpiceJet. "SpiceJet is focused on connecting these
burgeoning areas with more than 60 airports that could not be
served by larger jets. After an evaluation of all the aircraft in
the 60- to 80-seat category, we selected the Q400 NextGen aircraft,
which combines excellent reliability, economics and passenger
SpiceJet has also signed a 10-year agreement under Bombardier's
comprehensive SmartParts program that will provide a wide spectrum
of cost-per-flight-hour maintenance for the airline's full fleet of
Q400 NextGen aircraft.
