Budget airlines SpiceJet on Friday said it has inducted its first Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft that forms part of a $22 billion purchase deal signed with the American aircraft manufacturer.

"SpiceJet had signed a $22 billion deal with Boeing for up to 205 aircraft in 2017 and this is the first aircraft delivery from that order," a company statement said here.

"These new aeroplanes will enable us to open new routes, and will dramatically reduce noise pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Passengers will benefit from a large number of premium seats and, for the first time in India, broadband internet on board," SpiceJet Chairman Ajay Singh said in a statement.

"India is a fast-growing market for commercial aeroplanes and services," said Boeing Senior Vice President (Commercial Sales and Marketing) Ihssane Mounir.
