Indigo has signed for 300 A320neo aircraft with Airbus.
This latest order by the low-cost carrier comprises a mix of A320neo, A321neo and A321XLR aircraft. This will take its total number of A320neo family aircraft orders to 730.
“This order is an important milestone, as it reiterates our mission of strengthening air connectivity in India, which will in turn boost economic growth and mobility. India is expected to continue with its strong aviation growth and we are well on our way to build the world’s best air transportation system, to serve more customers and to deliver on our promise of providing low fares and a courteous, hassle free experience to them,” says Ronojoy Dutta, chief executive officer of Indigo.
Since its first A320neo aircraft was delivered in March 2016, its fleet of A320neo aircraft has grown into the world’s largest with 97 A320neo aircraft, operating next to 128 A320ceos.
Guillaume Faury, chief executive officer at Airbus, says, “We are delighted that Indigo, one of our early launch customers for the A320neo, continues to build its future with Airbus, making Indigo the world’s biggest customer for the A320neo family.”
At the end of September 2019, the A320neo family of aircraft had received more than 6,650 firm orders from nearly 110 customers worldwide.
