This service, in future, will also be extended to smaller cities like Jaipur, Goa, Guwahati, Varanasi and Kochi."

"The roving check-in service will help passengers who are physically challenged, elderly passengers and mothers with new born babies. SpiceJet has always been sensitive towards saving passengers'' precious time and is open to invest heavily in technologies to enhance customer care" he further added.
