SpiceJet resumes flights after fuel supplies restored

MUMBAI

SpiceJet Ltd has resumed flights after oil marketing companies started refuelling the company’s aircraft following a token payment of its dues, according to two airline executives.

SpiceJet, India’s second largest low-fare airline, had grounded its flights on Wednesday morning as fuel retailers had stopped supply of jet fuel citing past dues, reports Mint.

“Flights have resumed after we made a token payment to oil marketing companies towards dues,” said a senior SpiceJet executive, requesting anonymity. A senior executive with Hindustan Petroleum Corp. Ltd confirmed the development. “We have started refuelling SpiceJet. The airline has paid money too,” he said.
