SpiceJet Relives in NCLT Ruling

In a relief for low-cost airline SpiceJet, the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) on 4 December dismissed a plea to initiate insolvency against the airline filed by aircraft lessor Willis Lease Finance over unpaid dues.

SpiceJet had questioned the maintainability of Willis' plea because they had filed a similar plea earlier this year but chose to withdraw it owing to certain technical defects. They filed a plea in April 2023 over unpaid dues.

The tribunal heard SpiceJet's application questioning the maintainability of the plea for over six months before dismissing it on 4 December.

During the earlier hearings, the tribunal questioned how a fresh insolvency plea could be filed for the same cause of action, without first sending a notice to SpiceJet under the provisions of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016.

It also questioned how a new plea could be initiated for the same cause of action without obtaining the court's permission to do so.

Senior Advocate Virender Ganda, who appeared for Willis, argued that a fresh notice was required to be sent only when the new insolvency pela introduces new invoices not contemplated in the previous notice. However, when the new insolvency plea is a mere re-filing, a notice need not be sent.

Three aircraft lessors have filed four insolvency pleas against SpiceJet in 2023 for the non-payment of dues.

While the NCLT has issued notice only in Aircastle's first plea, it has been urging the airline to settle with the lessors.

If you're considering investing in airline stocks, make sure you do your due diligence. It's a risky sector. If you get either the stock or your timing wrong, you could face serious losses. For more, check out the top airline companies in India.
