The passenger traffic for small towns is booming for upcoming festive season, and to make most out of this festive season, SpiceJet is now going to add four Bombardier turboprop aircraft to its fleet list. India’s second largest budget air carrier – SpiceJet will take advantage of this as Indian Government is planning to roll out its Regional Connectivity Scheme (RCS) soon. SpiceJet officials state, “We are going to launch new flights for destinations like Silchar and Aizawl. We will also lunch additional air carriers for Dhaka.”
Government’s RCS plan will boost air operations to smaller areas and even government will offer great incentives to airlines in the form of a viability gap funding (VGF). RCS will allow travelers to travel in a fare cap of Rs 1770-Rs 4070 for 200km to 800 km respectively.
