SpiceJet to expand internationally but not at expense of region

31-Jan-2011 10:54 AM

SpiceJet CEO Neil Mills stated the carrier, which operates two international routes, may add one or two new international destinations by summer 2011 (Reuters/Wall Street Journal, 28-Jan-2011). He commented: "We are not looking too far away from India ... international is not a prime focus of our business." The carrier plans to focus on short-haul international routes, with Dhaka and Male cited as possible destinations. However, it plans to focus on increasing its regional network, with CCO Samyukth Sridharan stating: "We are not fussed about flying international. We see massive opportunity for growth in India."
