Flying With SpiceJet for the First Time: An Introduction and Guide
SpiceJet is the country’s fourth largest airline. As far as affordable fares and efficient services, not too many names in the world come to mind; the company has interestingly been criticised by the Indian media in July 2014 for slashing airline fares by as much as 50 per cent. If you’re looking for air travel with the bare necessities of transport met without compromise with minimal attention to luxury, you’re never too wrong taking up SpiceJet as the airline of your choice. A quick search on their website reveals that tomorrow’s flight from Mumbai to Calcutta costs a mere seven thousand bucks. Make it next month, and the cost falls to under five thousand. Yes, airlines that compete with government train fares – that’s what you’re looking at here.
SpiceJet has been around for quite a while now; it was founded by S K Modi in partnership with Lufthansa, Germany’s national airline; as a company called ModiLuft. A decade later in 2003, the company improved its operations paying more attention to low-cost flights, and Spice Jet was born. Today, the company has revenue of about a billion dollars annually, and is undoubtedly one of the most popular airlines in the nation. To book a flight with Spice Jet, you need to buy a ticket and get yourself a passenger name record number.
What is Flight PNR Status?
Flight PNR status is short for Passenger Name Record Status. It is how airlines keep a record of you specifically as their passenger, and it is the code that they invariably refer to in order to give you information on your journey, their status, as well as allow you to make preferences of meal, seat, and special requirements.
How to Check PNR Status with SpiceJet?
The easiest way of checking PNR status is online – all you need to do is go to their website and navigate to the area, where you can manage an existing booking – assuming that you have a ticket booked already as mentioned above. Your PNR number will be printed on your ticket, and you have to enter it in a form that shows up when you ask to know the status of your flight. If you do not have access to the internet, you can always give the airline a call on the number mentioned in your ticket, and verbally communicate the PNR to them to get the same information in an analogue medium.
