IndiGo is an Indian low-cost airline. They are already the largest Indian carrier and now they are expanding their fleet with 300 new Airbus A320neo. This will be one of the largest orders from a single carrier.
IndiGo’s Airbus A320neo Order
This has been a good year for Airbus. The Airbus A320neo already had more than 6,650 orders from 110 different customers worldwide. Now, India’s largest low-cost carrier placed an order for 300 new Airbus A320neo. That will mark one of the largest orders from a single carrier yet. This order is worth approximately 33 billion US dollars. In the order, they included A320neos, A321neos, and A321XLRs. This will be a huge addition to the IndiGo fleet. They have already ordered 430 Airbus A320neo aircraft, which included:
- 280 Airbus A320neos
- 150 Airbus A321neos
In total, IndiGo ordered 730 Airbus A320neo aircraft.
“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 deliver on our promise of providing low fares and a courteous, hassle-free experience to them.” Said Ronojoy Dutta, the chief executive officer, IndiGo
This massive order puts IndiGo as the Airline to watch as it will be interesting to see what exactly they will do with the order. It also rockets Airbus ahead of its competitors. Airbus’s largest rival, Boeing, has been in some hot water lately with the 737. This order puts Airbus as the head of the huge Indian market. Just last week Spirt airlines ordered 100 Airbus single-aisle planes. Even their stock is doing well with a 50% rise in 2019. Everything points to a good year for Airbus!
