IndiGo, India’s Largest Airline Place Order For 30 Airbus A350-900

IndiGo, India’s leading airline, has placed a firm order for 30 state-of-the-art Airbus A350-900 aircraft. This strategic move is aimed at expanding IndiGo’s international network to long-haul destinations.

India, known as the world’s fastest-growing major aviation market, stands on the brink of an international travel boom. As the economy continues to grow and household incomes rise, there is a surge in demand for long-range travel. The Airbus A350 is ideally positioned to meet these aspirations, offering advanced technology, fuel efficiency, and passenger comfort.

IndiGo’s decision to choose the A350 reaffirms its unwavering trust in Airbus. It also serves as a testament to the aircraft’s undisputed leadership in long-haul air travel. The airline’s commitment to quality and innovation aligns perfectly with the A350’s capabilities.

Pieter Elbers, CEO of IndiGo, expressed his excitement about this historic moment:

“Today marks a new chapter for IndiGo, shaping the future of our airline and Indian aviation. With our fleet of 30 Airbus A350-900 aircraft, we are poised to become a major global player. IndiGo takes pride in being India’s preferred airline, connecting our customers both within India and beyond.”

Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, Airbus EVP Sales, Commercial Aircraft, conveyed his gratitude to IndiGo:

“We sincerely thank IndiGo for once again placing their trust in Airbus. This widebody order opens an exciting chapter in our close partnership. Having revolutionized domestic air travel in India with our fuel-efficient A320 Family, we are confident that the A350 will replicate this success on long-haul routes.”

The A350’s clean sheet design includes state-of-the-art technologies and aerodynamics delivering unmatched standards of efficiency and comfort. Its new generation engines and use of lightweight materials bring a 25 per cent advantage in fuel burn, operating costs and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, compared to previous generation competitor aircraft.
