After the closure of Jet Airways as an airline operator, AirAsia, Vistara and SpiceJet had approached the airline to buy its B737 aircraft. The airline operators had shown an interest in buying this narrow-bodied aircraft. Earlier, Airvistara had applied for the approval of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation after approaching Jet Airways. But then the company didn’t pursue its plans. The Bangalore-based airline – AirAsia too had shared a similar interest but then the Tata Group venture decided to continue with only one type of aircraft. The airline plans to add over 21 more A320 aircraft in two years. Up till now, SpiceJet has introduced 20 B737 aircraft by Jet Airways.
