IndiGo, a low-cost carrier based in India, is reportedly finalizing a massive airplane order worth nearly USD 25 billion. The order is said to include 500 Airbus A320 family jet planes, surpassing Air India’s recent order of 470 airplanes.

The new order from IndiGo is a significant development for the aviation industry and highlights the carrier’s ambitious growth plans. With a strong presence in the domestic market and expanding long-haul operations, IndiGo is well-positioned to continue its success in the highly competitive Indian aviation market.
