SpiceJet confirmed (13-Jul-2012) the further expansion of its international network with plans to launch New Delhi-Kabul service on 14-Aug-2012- see Route Changes Table for more information. The carrier said the "launch of Kabul services is a milestone for the airline as SpiceJet would be the sole private Indian carrier to operate services to this country". Kabul is the fourth international destination for SpiceJet and the announcement comes within a fortnight of launch of Dubai services. SpiceJet currently operates in three international destinations with four routes – Delhi-Kathmandu, Chennai-Colombo, Delhi-Dubai and Mumbai-Dubai. The carrier added it is "working on new destinations in India as well as additional international destinations as the carrier has set its sights on expanding its coverage in phases". Under its expansion in the domestic market, SpiceJet last week announced its first phase of Northern India expansion, with the airline to connect to the cities of Amritsar, Dehradun, Chandigarh, Indore and Srinagar to Delhi.
