"The offer of complimentary meals and beverages and priority baggage handling facility for all SpiceMax seats will be a permanent feature, going forward," the Delhi-basedairline said in a statement.

It's the equivalent of a business class/premium economy seat in other airlines. The airline, which had earlier announced a limited period offer with these additions, on Friday said the extension is result of positive customer response.

The first five rows of SpiceJet's Boeing aircraft and the front row on a Bombardier Q400 aircraft are specially configured to offer SpiceMax seats. The second exit row on Boeings will also, henceforth, be designated as SpiceMax seats, the Ajay Singh-promoted airline said.

SpiceMax seats are available for an add-on fee of Rs 500 to Rs 1,000 per sector, depending on aircraft and flight length, and can be purchased by selecting a SpiceMax seat on the seat map at the time of booking.
