A year after allowing domestic airlines to directly import aviation fuel to save on costs, Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh has said that he expected budget carrier SpiceJet to be the first to opt for this.
“We have allowed them (airlines) to directly import fuel by entering into tie-ups with other companies. I expect SpiceJet to be the first to directly import the fuel. When they will start is up to them,” Ajit Singh told reporter in an interview.
SpiceJet was also the first private carrier to get approval to directly import fuel.
