SpiceJet To Launch Scheduled Services To London In December


SpiceJet will start operating scheduled services from both Delhi and Mumbai to London Heathrow in December. Besides Air India and Vistara, SpiceJet is the third Indian airline to operate flights to the British capital.

SpiceJet will fly to London three times a week starting December 4th, twice from Delhi and once from Mumbai. The airline uses an Airbus A330-900, equipped with 371 seats, which is being leased from HiFly. SpiceJet itself does not have widebody aircraft.

SpiceJet is to become the first Indian budget airline to launch long haul flights. After Jet Airways went bankrupt in Spring 2019, Air India was the only Indian airline to operate long-haul flights. Vistara was started operating long haul flights in August.

The flights take place within the so-called “air bubble agreement” between India and the United Kingdom, intended to enable the repatriation of travelers. Strict admission restrictions apply in both countries.

SpiceJet has already operated several repatriation flights to Europe on a charter basis in recent months, also using the services of HiFly.
