SpiceJet paints Jet Airways' Boeing 737s with its own colors

New Delhi - Indian low-cost SpiceJet takes over grounded Boeing 737s of the Jet Airways. The airline repaints the planes with its own colors.

A photo posted on the SpiceJet's official Twitter account shows a Jet Airways Boeing 737 being painted in SpiceJet livery.

SpiceJet has also recruited more than 100 pilots, 200 cabin crew and 200 technical personnel from the financially troubled carrier.
Jet Airways' current debt is around $1.2 billion.

SpiceJet will take over 27 Boeing 737s in total from Jet Airways over the next two weeks and fill in the slots left vacant by the airline.
