INDIA's big budget carrier SpiceJet flew its first long-haul wide-body charter flight from Delhi to Toronto, repatriating 352 Canadian nationals and permanent residents stranded by the Covid scare, reported Delhi's BW Businessworld.

'Being the first Indian budget airline to operate a non-stop long-haul flight to North America is a proud moment for SpiceJet,' said SpiceJet chairman and managing director Ajay Singh.



'We have operated flights across the globe repatriating close to 85,000 people and transporting over 28,000 tons of medical and essential supplies and we intend to keep on with our efforts,' he said.
