IndiGo orders 30 A-350 aircraft

The model of choice for its long-haul ambitions

IndiGo has placed a firm order for 30 A-350/900 aircraft. The order will help expand carrier’s international network to long-haul destinations.

India, the world’s fastest growing major aviation market, is on the verge of an international travel boom as the economy grows and household incomes rise. The model is positioned to serve the country’s aspirations for long-range travel. The choice of this airplane is a reaffirmation of IndiGo’s continued trust in Airbus and is yet another validation of the aircraft in long-haul air travel.
Bound in a relationship of symbiotic growth with India for more than half a century, Airbus products and services have catalysed the growth of the country’s civil aviation sector. While the A-320 Family is supporting the democratisation of air travel in India, the A-350 has become the reference aircraft to unlock the true potential of the international market for the Indian carriers.
 IndiGo is among the fastest growing airline companies in the world, and is one of the largest A-320 Family customers.
 The A-350 is the wide-body aircraft in the 300-410 seater category. Its new generation engines and use of lightweight materials bring an advantage in fuel burn, operating costs and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, compared to previous generation aircraft.
