SpiceJet has informed the exchanges that it has grounded three of its B737 freighter aircraft.

The low cost carrier on Friday said that the step was taken "on the advice of the Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI), which converted these aircraft to freighters".

"These aircraft will return to operations after regulatory clearance," it added.
