NEW DELHI: In order to diversify activities beyond aviation, low-cost airline SpiceJet is considering major business partnerships with two American firms, including an airline.

“We are exploring an alliance with an international carrier and also another major American company,” SpiceJet chairman Ajay Singh told reporters in Washington.

Singh said there are significant strategic partnerships that the company can enter into and it will be announced soon.

Refraining from naming his partner companies in the US, Singh said they are looking at the technology sector.

“We think it’s important to be in the digital and technology space. We want to be in the cargo, courier and logistics business. That’s going to be an important part of SpiceJet’s business,” Singh said.
