SpiceJet offers cheap Covid-19 screening service to encourage passengers to fly again



SpiceJet - India's second-largest airline, offers cheap Covid-19 screening service to both generate more revenue and encourage passengers to fly again.

 SpiceJet offers a Covid-19 screening service to its passengers for as little as 299 rupees ($4) - one third of the market price.  SpiceHealth is in charge of this.

 They also set up mobile community testing facilities in Mumbai and New Delhi, with prices starting at 499 rupees.  Residents can come in person or request to take samples for testing at home.

The Indian aviation industry has a large domestic market and is recovering much faster than other places like Singapore or Hong Kong.  However, the pandemic is still affecting this industry.  SpiceJet made a net loss of nearly 570 million rupees in the last quarter of last year, in contrast to the 732 million rupees profit at the end of 2019.

The loss causes many airlines around the world to find new sources of income when cash is gradually running out.  Qantas Airways (Australia) last year leased one of the Boeing Dreamliners for sightseeing tours of Antarctica.  They also sell things that are often used as a gift to luxury guests, like pajamas.  Low-cost airline AirAsia opens a website selling fresh fruits and vegetables.

 Analysts believe that only when the vaccine is widely injected globally, International flights can truly revive.  According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), airlines could burn up to $95 billion this year.
