The launch of SpiceJet’s second route to Sri Lanka’s capital Colombo was celebrated thoroughly – ribbon-cutting, lamp-lighting and of course there was also a cake to cut.
- SpiceJet, the airline analysed this week, launched its second route to Sri Lanka’s capital Colombo (CMB) on 20 September. The Indian low-cost airline now flies daily from Madurai (IXM) in southern India, merely 350 kilometres away, using its 78-seat Q400 aircraft. Colombo was SpiceJet’s first international destination in September 2010 and the new route is now the airline’s sixth international service. The only other destination outside of India to be served with more than one SpiceJet route is Dubai, which the airline serves from both Delhi and Mumbai.
