More so night flights are a smart option to business and other frequent travellers as they can conveniently attend their business meetings and take a late-night flight back thus avoiding road traffic during peak hours. We are in a process of adding close to half a dozen red-eye flights in the coming winter schedule as they serve our objective of boosting connectivity 24×7.” said Ajay Jasra, General Manager (Corporate Affairs), SpiceJet.
