IndiGo is one of the biggest airlines in India and has the largest domestic market share. Despite this, the carrier is leaving no stone unturned to increase its presence in the international market, especially in the USA. In line with its commitment to boost international operations, IndiGo had placed an order of 30 Airbus A350-900 aircraft April 25. And the first widebody A350 aircraft is set to join the IndiGo fleet in 2027. 

The widebody aircraft order by IndiGo costs a whopping $9 billion. The Airbus A350-900 has been gaining popularity not just among airlines but aviation enthusiasts and passengers as well. The iconic aircraft, powered by Rolls Royce’s Trent XWB engine will redefine IndiGo’s capabilities and strategic positioning globally. 

Enhanced IndiGo Fleet for International Expansion

IndIGo is expanding its fleet to offer more flights to major international destinations. It seeks to become a prominent player on the global stage. IndiGo aims to leverage the new fleet to start offering direct flights to USA and Europe. At present, Air India is the only Indian Airline offering nonstop flights between USA and India. With an increase in demand on the most popular route, IndiGo plans to expand its international flight operations on USA routes. 

Indigo is set for substantial growth, with ambitious targets set for the next decade. The airline aims to double its size by 2030. This will be propelled by the addition of new domestic and international routes. The new order for widebody aircraft builds upon IndiGo’s earlier commitment to Airbus. In a way, it also solidifies its position as a key player in the global aviation industry. Moreover, with a focus on operational efficiency, IndiGo plans to optimize the utilization of its widebody and narrow-body aircraft to meet growing demand and enhance its market presence.

How does IndiGo’s strategic investments reflect its commitment to passenger service?  

The strategic investments for the IndiGo fleet underscore the airline’s commitment to delivering exceptional service and connectivity to its passengers. With a robust order book that includes a mix of A320neo, A321neo, and A321XLR aircraft, the airline is ready for sustained growth well into the next decade.
