Low fare airline SpiceJet turns 10 this week and to celebrate the occasion the airline today launched a special discount offer called the #CelebrationSale with tickets priced at Rs 1,010 all inclusive.
SpiceJet, which flew its first commercial flight between Delhi and Ahmedabad in 2005 on a Boeing 737 aircraft, completes its first decade of flying on May 23, 2015. according to Spicejet, its efforts over the decade helped make average airfares in India more affordable than ever before.
Amongst the firsts SpiceJet takes credit for are the first to offer hot meals for sale on board, the first to offer dedicated extra legroom seats in a specially configured cabin, and the first to innovate in multiple other ways such as through the introduction of Bombardier Q400 turbo-prop aircraft to fly to smaller cities, through its popular weekend uniform, and through its unique celebrations of festivals such as Holi and Diwali.
When SG101 took off from Delhi bound for Ahmedabad on May 23 2005, the iPhone was still two years away, Twitter was still a year away, and Facebook and YouTube were new-born babies. In that sense SpiceJet was one of the new breed of ventures – young, dynamic, different, friendly and approachable and with a sense of humour, somewhat iconoclastic, and with a refusal to accept the status quo. 10 years later, our DNA remains the same, which is why we are the warmest, friendliest, trendiest, and most fun airline in India today, the airline with spunk and with heart, the airline that has truly enabled more Indians to fly than ever before. Through ups and downs, the SpiceJet passion and spirit has never dimmed” said Sanjiv Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer (COO), SpiceJet Ltd.
