Budget passenger carrier SpiceJet on Monday announced that starting Wednesday, it will reserve single row seats only for solo women passengers on all its flights.

According to the airline, the fourth row seats would be reserved for the airline's solo women passengers on all its flights, starting March 8 -- the International Women's day.

The airline said the initiative will be observed on all its flights across the fleet, inclusive of both Boeings and Q400s.

“In case of a full flight scenario, males will be assigned window seats; whereas the aisle and middle seats (B, C and D, E) will be assigned to women on a first come first serve basis. The special seating arrangement is being catered to offer more ease to the solo female travellers, as moving out of the middle or the aisle seats is much easier thereby ensuring safety and comfort to them in case of an emergency and even otherwise,” the statement added.

The airline said that solo women passengers traveling with the airline on March 8, 2017, can avail a free upgrade to SpiceMax seats.

"On the D-day -- 8th March 2017, female passengers travelling alone will have the special privilege to avail a free upgrade to SpiceMax seats if the latter is available," the budget airline said in a statement.
