SPICEJET, the country’s favourite airline, is all geared up to resume operations post lockdown starting May 25, 2020 and is committed to providing the highest level of healthy, safe and secure flying experience with minimal contact to its passengers and staff. The airline will strictly adhere to social distancing norms and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) laid down by the government to ensure a top-level, clean and sanitised flying experience.
To start with, the airline will operate flights to 41 domestic destinations operating an average 204 daily and 1431 weekly flights. SpiceJet will be operating flights on all its UDAN routes.
SpiceJet has decided to introduce a slew of in-flight and on-ground modifications in line with the global best practices and Government SOPs to minimise human contact and ensure safe travel for its passengers.
Ajay Singh, Chairman and Managing Director, SpiceJet said, “I am happy to announce the resumption of our passenger operations from May 25 after a two month-long lockdown-imposed hiatus. Your favourite airline is ready to spread its wings again and fly you safely to your destination. We are committed to providing the highest level of cleanliness and a safe, secure and healthy flying experience to our passengers and staff. We will strictly adhere to social distancing norms and SOPs laid down by the Government to ensure the best, the cleanest and the most sanitised flying experience.”
“Flying was and remains the safest mode of public transport. We eagerly await to welcome our guests onboard and to serve them again. I wish and hope that SpiceJet grows stronger in the times to come and contributes to the country’s economic might.”
SpiceJet has implemented the best-in-class cleaning procedures on all its aircraft in addition to disinfecting customer touch points and surfaces before every flight. The cleaning procedure for flights includes a thorough wipe down using an effective, high-grade, Boeing-approved disinfectant across aircraft interiors including the places customers touch most – the tray tables, seat covers, armrests, seatbelts, window shades and lavatories and their knobs.
All SpiceJet aircraft now have synthetic leather seats. These non-porous seats don’t allow the COVID-19 virus to penetrate inside them and can be easily wiped off compared to standard fabric seats.
