According to media reports, two big Gulf airlines have approached Ajay Singh-promoted SpiceJet for buying a stake in the airline.

Singh, the original co-founder, took back the reins last December amid SpiceJet facing turbulent times. He has already pumped in more than Rs 800 crore and continues to explore various investment options for the carrier.

After seven quarters of losses, SpiceJet posted a net profit of Rs 22.51 crore in the January-March period helped by renegotiated contracts and settlements and provisioning for re-delivery expenses, among others.
