NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Low-cost carrier Spicejet (SPJT.BO) said on Wednesday net loss for January-March quarter widened more than four-fold to 2.49 billion rupees, as fuel and airport charges swelled in the country’s fiercely competitive market.
The No. 3 Indian carrier by market share had incurred losses of 586 million rupees in the year-ago period.
Spicejet said there was some easing in costs in recent months, and sees lower fuel costs once the company starts importing jet fuel directly.
