Cruising Heights' August issue takes an indepth look at the SpiceJet saga. From an almost written-off airline in December 2014, the low-cost carrier has, within a span of three years, seen a miraculous recovery. Today, it is on the verge of nudging top carrier and rival IndiGo from its perch even as it seeks to month international services to Europe and other destinations with its new planes. The issue also looks at the new star in the aviation firmament, the A220-300. Also: interviews with Dassault's Vadim Feldzer about the the new Falcon jet programme that holds a lot of promises for the company; and with Francois Cognard, Vice President, Sales, Asia-Pacific, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft who points out that the Q400 was best suited for India's aviation needs and lastly, Saab officials who see a a huge potential for the company's remote ATCs in India. Plus: A report on the recent Farnborough Airshow and all the regular features.
