IndiGo takes delivery of its first longer range A321neo plane

IndiGo has taken the delivery of its first longer range Airbus A321neo aircraft. Following this, the low-cost carrier becomes the first domestic airline to receive the aircraft type.

On December 28, IndiGo’s maiden A321neo (VT-IUA) arrived at the terminal 3 of Indira Gandhi International Airport (Delhi), where it was welcomed by a grand water salute.


IndiGo will be deploying this aircraft on its medium-long haul international routes.

Earlier this month, IndiGo became the first Indian airline to have 200 aircraft on its fleet. With this new addition, the airline now has a total of 204 aircraft on its fleet — one A321neo, 65 A320neos, 126 A320ceos (current engine option), and 12 ATRs.

Meanwhile, IndiGo recently signed a codeshare deal with Turkish Airlines, thereby enabling both the carriers to offer better connectivity on sectors between India and Istanbul.
