New Delhi, December 17,2014 (IANS) Offering respite to hundreds of SpiceJet passengers stranded across India Wednesday, the company's management said it will resume operations from 4 p.m. onwards as an understanding has been reached with the oil companies over the supply of jet fuel to its aircraft.

"Flights will depart on or after 4 p.m. today. We apologize again for the disruptions," said Sanjiv Kapoor, chief operating officer of SpiceJet. "Spicejet apologizes for disruption and pain caused to passengers due to stoppage of fuelling for our

flights by the oil companies. We are working to resolve the issue."

Kapoor's assurance comes after a re-run of a Kingfisher-type fiasco which resulted in passengers being stranded across the country as all SpiceJet flight operations were grounded. The operations were grounded after oil marketing companies (OMCs) refused to provide SpiceJet with credit to buy jet fuel over the issue of non-payment of dues.

The company currently has around 250 departures per day with maximum operations being carried out from Delhi and Mumbai.
