SpiceJet ties up with CDB Aviation, lessor of Boeing 737 MAX

New Delhi, Sep 13 (PTI) SpiceJet on Monday said it has entered into an agreement with CDB Aviation, the major lessor of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft.

Earlier on August 26, the airline said it had agreed to a deal with Avalon, another major lessor of the aircraft.

The budget airline said in a statement on Monday that it expects to start operating the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft by the end of September 2021. It is awaiting regulatory approval to operate.

India’s aviation regulator Directorate of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on August 26 lifted the ban on commercial flight operations of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft after nearly two and a half years.

On March 13, the DGCA suspended all Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in India after the Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX plane crashed near Addis Ababa on March 10, 2019. 157 people including four Indians were killed in the plane crash.

At present, only SpiceJet airline has Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in its fleet in India.

The airline said on Monday that it has reached a commercial agreement with CDB Aviation, adding to the already announced agreement with Avalon that will increase its fleet of 737 MAX aircraft.
