IndiGo Makes Aviation History with Record-Breaking Order of 500 Airbus Planes

IndiGo, the largest airline in India, has made history with its latest aircraft order from Airbus. The airline announced its purchase of 500 A320 planes, marking the largest order ever in commercial aviation. The deal solidifies the already strong relationship between IndiGo and Airbus, as the airline has previously ordered a staggering total of 1,330 aircraft from the manufacturer since its establishment in 2006.

IndiGo emphasized the fuel efficiency and cost-saving benefits of the A320NEO Family aircraft. By prioritizing these factors, the airline aims to continue lowering its operating costs while maintaining high reliability standards. The significance of this historic order is not lost on IndiGo’s CEO, Pieter Elbers, who highlighted the order’s contribution to India’s economic growth, social cohesion, and mobility.

Currently operating a fleet of over 300 aircraft, IndiGo already has 480 aircraft on order, scheduled for delivery by the end of the decade. With this latest order of 500 additional aircraft set to be delivered between 2030 and 2035, IndiGo’s order book now approaches almost 1,000 planes, ensuring its growth well into the next decade. The order consists of a combination of A320NEO, A321NEO, and A321XLR models, further solidifying IndiGo’s confidence in the A320 Family and its strategic partnership with Airbus.
