Expanding its international network, no-frill carrier SpiceJet will make its debut in the Chinese sky with the launch of its service from here to Southern China's Guangzhou city from February.
SpiceJet would fly on Guangzhou-Delhi route four days a week and commercial flights on this route would commence from February 8, an airline spokesperson said, adding booking of tickets for the flights on the route are open.
The airline would be operating the flight between Delhi and Guangzhou with a 189-seater Boeing 737 Next Generation aircraft.
"Guangzhou makes our debut in the Chinese sky. We are offering the air connectivity at very affordable fare to the passengers from India and China. The service also reiterates growing economic interest between two of the world's largest economies," said Neil Mills, SpiceJet's Chief Executive Officer at the inaugural function held at Guangzhou today.
SpiceJet has been expanding its network in India as well as on international routes. Guangzhou is also a part of our network expansion, he added.
Guangzhou is South China's centre of education, culture and communication and is one of the three biggest exhibition cities of that country.
The city is leading manufacturing and economic region of China and therefore one of the most important centers of foreign commerce, the statement said.
