India’s budget carrier SpiceJet has announced new international flights to Bangkok. According to a statement released by the airline, the operations will commence from March 10 in a phased manner.

The newly launched SpiceJet Bangkok flights will enhance the air connectivity between India and Thailand. SpiceJet will operate daily direct flights connecting Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai with Bangkok.

“We are delighted to launch new flights connecting Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata with Bangkok. The Thai Capital has always been among the top picks for leisure travellers and a favourite international destination for SpiceJet passengers. With international leisure travel picking up again, we expect our new flights to do very well,” said Shilpa Bhatia, Chief Commercial Officer, SpiceJet.

SpiceJet Reported Profit in the Quarter Ended in December 2021

Meanwhile, SpiceJet reported a net profit of Rs 23.28 crore in the third quarter after seven consecutive losses. Experts attribute the profitability of SpiceJet to the compensation it received from the US aircraft manufacturer Boeing for the grounding of its 13 SpiceJet Boeing 737 Max planes. Boeing offered compensation to several airlines worldwide due to the design flaw in its 737 Max planes, which resulted in two fatal crashes. SpiceJet was the only airline that operated Boeing 737 Max aircraft in India during the time.

However, SpiceJet is battling several legal disputes and also have to meet the recovery of the losses it made in the previous quarters. SpiceJet is blamed for being a defaulter of more than $24 million in a major legal dispute with Credit Suisse AG.
