Low-cost carrier SpiceJet is likely to join the global airlines’ grouping the International Air Transport Association (IATA) as a member. The grouping has a membership of around 290 airlines that represent about 82 per cent of total air traffic.
“SpiceJet has requested to be a member,” IATA Director General and Chief Executive Officer Alexandre de Juniac told PTI. There was no immediate response to a query sent to a SpiceJet spokesperson. Air India, Jet Airways, Jet Lite and Vistara are members of the IATA.
