Spicejet has become the second Indian airline after Air India which will fly to US and UK in the air bubble announced by the government. Regular scheduled international flights remain suspended till the end of July. But to bring home stranded Indians, the government has established bilateral air bubbles where designated carriers from both countries will run flights on popular routes.
Bookings are not yet open on the Spicejet website for either of the sectors. Air India US flights are now priced starting Rs 51,000. United’s Delhi to Newark flight tickets are starting from Rs 57,000 whereas flights to San Francisco are priced at Rs 67,000.
Spicejet has been operating international flights to select destinations like Singapore, Dubai, Colombo, Kathmandu and Bangkok before the corona induced lockdown. Once international flights resume, it is expected that Spicejet will continue to fly to long haul destinations like US and UK.
