SpiceJet Defers Deliveries of 3 Q400s

The last 3 deliveries of SpiceJet’s 15-strong order of Bombardier Dash-8 Q400s have been deferred. SpiceJet has blamed the increase in fees at Delhi International Airport for this decision. The sharp hike in fees at DIAL has caused SpiceJet to require less capacity than expected for its Delhi regional hub.

SpiceJet’s order also allows has 15 options for more aircraft – these options are unlikely to be used in the near future.
