GURUGRAM, February 2, 2024: SpiceJet is proud to announce that it has secured flight rights for Haj operations from seven Indian cities. The cities include Srinagar, Gaya, Guwahati, Bhopal, Indore, Aurangabad, and Vijayawada.

Haj has been a significant revenue generator for SpiceJet, reaffirming its commitment to serving diverse segments of passengers. In the current fiscal year, SpiceJet garnered a revenue of INR 337 crore from Haj operations, operating flights from five Indian cities. This year, the airline anticipates even higher revenue from its Haj operations.

The commencement of the first phase of Haj operations is scheduled for May 9, with flights to Medina. SpiceJet is gearing up to ensure a seamless and comfortable travel experience for Haj pilgrims from the selected cities.

Last year, SpiceJet had inducted three wide-body aircraft specifically dedicated to Haj operations. This year, the airline plans to follow suit, particularly focusing on enhancing services for flights originating from Srinagar.

Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet, said, “We are delighted to have secured flight rights for Haj operations from seven prominent Indian cities. Haj has always been a significant segment for SpiceJet, and we are committed to providing the best-in-class services for the pilgrims.
