On the other hand, the travel portal said that it will facilitate the designing, contracting and booking of these holiday packages using their existing partnership.
A few days ago, the budget carrier announced that it was ready to resume Boeing-B-737 MAX flights from the first week of October after a two-and-a-half-year-long ban.
Earlier in August, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had given permission for the resumption of B-737 MAX aircraft in Indian skies.
SpiceJet flew around 6,300 hours on the 737 MAX before the plane landed in March 2019 after two fatal crashes.
The airline currently has a total of 13 Boeing Max aircraft in its fleet.
