SpiceJet in talks with Tata-AIG to cut for delays

Forget about losses due to low fares and stiff competition, now fog delays have further left the aviation industry bleeding. Only a few days after Air-India became the first airline in the country to invite bids from insurance firms for coverage against losses arising out of foggy conditions, the low-cost airline, SpiceJet, is also in advanced talks with Tata-AIG for an all-delay cover to minimise losses due to fog delays.

SpiceJet is likely to charge between Rs 15- 50 per ticket for providing insurance for delays, a source said. However, the insurance cover will be optional for passengers.

SpiceJet has a fleet of 10 new generation Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
