SpiceJet introduces SpiceBiz Business Class
On May 11, Indian carrier SpiceJet rolled out SpiceBiz, its new Business Class offering, on select routes. The option will extend to select international routes in the near future, making the airline the second largest Business Class operator in India.
The cabin will feature a dedicated crew and seats with a 43-inch pitch and 7-inch recline. Guests will be able to take advantage of complimentary lounge access, higher baggage allowance, gourmet meals and beverages, priority services, and much more. (See full details below.)
SpiceJet will offer eight, 12 and 28 Business Class seats on its 737-700, 737-800 and 737-900 aircraft respectively, depending on configuration. The front row and the over-wing exit rows of the Economy cabin will be offered as SpiceMax, the airline's Premium Economy offering.
