IndiGo-Airbus Partnership

The announcement that IndiGo has ordered 30 Airbus A350 widebody aircraft was made in May 2024 where the new fleet was to help expand IndiGo’s international network to long-haul destinations. As India is the world’s fastest-growing major aviation market, the A350 is perfectly positioned to serve the country’s aspirations for long-range travel.

IndiGo also placed an order for 500 Airbus A320 family aircraft

In addition, IndiGo also placed a firm order for 500 Airbus A320 family aircraft. The announcement was made at the Paris Air Show where the deliveries for the order will be made between 2030 and 2035.

Talking of the order, Pieter Elbers, CEO, IndiGo, said, “This historic moment marks a new chapter for IndiGo and will further shape the future of the airline and for Indian aviation at the same time. For IndiGo, after successfully pioneering the Indian skies with an unprecedented journey, its fleet of 30 Airbus A350-900 aircraft will allow IndiGo to embark on its next phase of becoming one of the leading global aviation players. At IndiGo, we take pride in being India’s preferred airline and for offering connectivity to our customers, in and with India. This reaffirms IndiGo’s belief in, and commitment to, the growth of India, and in our strategic partnership with Airbus.”

IndiGo’s first widebody order opens an exciting new chapter in our close partnership. We are proud that our fuel-efficient, next-generation A320 Family revolutionised domestic air travel in India, and that now the A350 is poised to replicate the same success on long-haul routes.”
