SpiceJet has announced its intention to build its first international hub in the United Arab Emirates, specifically in Ras al-Khaimah. The UAE’s emerging travel destination, which will serve as a new home for India’s affordable SpiceJet. More on the news below:
- SpiceJet chairman and managing director Ajay Singh stated India’s second-largest airline would use this new hub to extend its range as far as Western Europe. SpiceJet flights between New Delhi and Ras al-Khaimah should begin in December.
- SpiceJet, which Singh retook control of in 2015, has embarked on an expansion. It operates a fleet of 111 Boeing and Bombardier aircraft and flies to over 50 Indian destinations and a handful of international routes, including Dubai.
- Under the plan, SpiceJet would begin flights in Ras al-Khaimah, then work over the coming months to create the hub there, either under the SpiceJet name or another. It will maintain its flights to Dubai.
The opening of the international hub is one of many exciting ventures happening in Ras al-Khaimah, which has emerged as the leading UAE destination for those seeking a culturally-immersive experience with luxury amenities and rich history. Beyond the SpiceJet hub, this hidden gem is on a mission to host the world’s largest firework show during New Year’s Eve 2020. Celebrity guests, renowned performers, events, games and more are currently in the works to culminate the never-before-seen celebration.
