Mr. Ajay Singh – CMD, SpiceJet on the occasion said, “There is tremendous growth taking place in the economies of small towns of the tier-II and tier-III cities. The next wave of growth for the Indian aviation industry is going to come from them as these small town airports will enable the industry to explore the growth potential of these untapped markets. With the onus of operating the highest number of flights into smaller destinations in the market today we are now focusing on elevating these regional cities on to our pan-India network.
