SpiceJet – Fleet, Bases and Aircraft rotations

b738-vt-sgi-spicejet

It all started will my love and passion towards Madurai International Airport (IXM). SpiceJet is the first airline to start international service from IXM and is the largest operator at IXM. I started looking at the rotation of their flights operated to/from IXM. Then I slowly got interested in knowing about the day to day operation of each aircraft and its rotation. Thus the below things came up.

Fleet

Updated on 10-Dec-2016

SpiceJet has 45 aircraft in its fleet. It consists of Boeing 737 family and Bombardier Dash 8 (also known as Q400). The seating capacity of each type is as follows

B737 – 700 = 149 seats
B737 – 800 = 189 seats
B737 – 900 = 212 seats
Dash 8 Q400 = 78 seats

Below is the break-up of each type and its registrations.

Aircraft Rotations

Note:  The below rotation is extracted from their schedule on my own. It has all the chances to change in day to day operation due to multiple reasons. Change in the rotation can also happen as aircraft may be swapped due to the arrival and departure of two aircraft at a station almost at the same timing.
