In India, SpiceJet and Jet Airways operate this aircraft. While all five of Jet's 737 MAXs have already been grounded, Spicejet has been allowed to fly them till 4 PM to cater to situations where aircraft are to fly back to India or go to a maintenance facility for parking.

According to the statement by the Civil Aviation Ministry, the planes in India will stay grounded until proper modifications and safety measures are taken.
