Bookmark

SpiceJet Ltd. has re-started operations of three Boeing 737 freighter planes that were grounded earlier this month, the budget carrier said on Monday.

The three planes were grounded due to a "potential defect" on advice from Israeli Aerospace Industries. That company had converted these aircraft into freighters.

In a regulatory filing Monday, the airline said the three grounded Boeing 737 freighter aircraft shall return to operations effective Dec. 23, 2019, basis the resolution provided by Israeli Aerospace Industries.

SpiceJet has four freighter planes that operate on domestic as well as international routes. Out of them, three were converted by IAI. The budget carrier has a fleet of 118 planes, including the freighters.
