SpiceJet suspends flights, benefiting rivals

SpiceJet has announced the temporary suspension of its flights on the Puducherry-Bengaluru-Hyderabad route until July 2 due to operational concerns. Passengers will be reimbursed or accommodated accordingly. This move presents an opportunity for rivals Go Air and Air India Asia, which operate on the same route, to capitalise on the increased demand. Furthermore, alternative means of transportation such as roads and trains are expected to see a surge in usage as people seek alternative travel options to reach Puducherry, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad. The suspension not only impacts the aviation industry but also has potential implications for other modes of transportation, opening up new sales opportunities for road and rail travel.

“SpiceJet regrets to inform you that it has decided to temporarily suspend its flights on the Puducherry- Bengaluru-Hyderabad route from June 20 to July 2, 2023, due to operational concerns,” the company said.
