Starting December 4, SpiceJet will launch non-stop flights connecting the major metros of Delhi and Mumbai with London’s Heathrow airport.
With this new route, SpiceJet will become the first Indian low-cost airline to operate flights to the UK. These flights will be operating under the air bubble agreement with the UK.
The airline will operate thrice-a-week to London
This includes twice from Delhi and once-a-week from Mumbai. For these flights, SpiceJet will be using an Airbus A330-900 Neo aircraft. The 371-seater twin-aisle A330 has a configuration of 353 economy and 18 business class seats.
From September 1 to October 23, SpiceJet had initially obtained slots at the London Heathrow Airport. Heathrow Airport had later extended the slots allotted to SpiceJet for the entire winter schedule.
Ajay Singh, Chairman & Managing Director, SpiceJet said, “London is one of the busiest long-haul destinations from India and our convenient flight timings should suit the convenience of our passengers perfectly. From repatriating over 1.3 lakh Indian nationals from across the globe to operating wide-body passenger and cargo flights to now starting flights to Heathrow, the last few months have been very significant for us.
He further added, “Providing non-stop connectivity from India to different parts of the world and strengthening our own airport hubs has been a long-cherished dream. With our London operations we have taken a small step in that direction.”
To celebrate this launch, the airline is offering an all-inclusive introductory return promotional fare starting at INR 53,555. This will be the fare on both Delhi-London-Delhi and Mumbai-London-Mumbai routes.
