The spice Jet is one of Indian low cost, domestic Airline. Its achieves of nearly a 32% of the India’s domestic market with total of 22 Boeing Aircrafts. [Boeing 737- 800 – 17 Aircraft and Boeing 737 – 900ER – 5 Aircraft ] and Spice Jet orders feather 36 Boeing Aircraft of 737-800 for their future development in domestic and international Air carrier.
The recent acquisition [nearly 37% Stake of Spice Jet] by the the SUN Network founder Mr.Kalanithi Maran, is leads the hope to the Indian investors to see future development of Spice Jet. Same time there is a possibility to Change of the Spice Jet Brand Name into New brand name which related with SUN Network Brands. This will held, only if he control over 50% Stake directly or Indirectly.
In Overall, the Spice Jet is a successful entrance to the Srilankan Market with a huge brand Promotion with their low cost Air travels [SLR( Srilankan Rupees) 3000], but Still questionable the survival in Srilankan market with these high price competitions.
but i leave the hopes, if the Mr.Kalanithi Maran Takeoff Spice Jet Under his Control, he will be a one of the Richest man in the world soon.
