According to the airline, it will increase frequencies on routes such as Delhi and Amritsar, Bangalore and Mangalore, Mumbai and Jabalpur and Delhi and Jabalpur amongst others.

"The new frequencies on the domestic sectors reflect our confidence that future growth and value lies in providing more connectivity to non-metros and tier 2 cities," said Sanjiv Kapoor, chief operating officer, SpiceJet.

On the international front, the airline said that it will introduce new daily flights to Dubai from Amritsar and Mangalore, taking its total service to Dubai to seven flights daily.  

"The new flights to Dubai are a reflection of our success in that market, and will utilise all of our available traffic rights to the city," Kapoor said.

The company is also offering "extra legroom" economy class seats known as SpiceMAX on all of the new flights.

The company said that as part of the new schedule it is suspending services to six cities, namely Aurangabad, Belgaum, Indore, Lucknow, Surat and Trivandrum.  

The airline added that services to these cities may resume at a later date as SpiceJet adds more aircraft to its fleet.
