SpiceJet will begin a daily service to the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh from its hub in Delhi by October, the airline’s head told Arabian Business.
The Chennai-based carrier, which launched its third international service to Dubai in June, will also begin flying to the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou around the same time, CEO Neil Mills confirmed on Wednesday, following media reports last month.
“We’ve got Guangzhou in China and Riyadh in Saudi Arabia coming next,” he said. “They should be done by the end of September but certainly October.” The Delhi-Riyadh route will be served by one of SpiceJet’s Boeing 737 aircraft.
Mills added that the Dubai service, which flies from both Mumbai and New Delhi was “performing just fine”. “The weakness that everybody said was on that route, we’ve not seen. With the product that we offer and the pricing that we offer, there’s been a lot of demand on that route,” Mills said, adding that were currently no plans to increase capacity on the service.
