IndiGo firms up 250 A320neo aircraft – Airbus’ largest order by number


Recommended Posts


India’s largest domestic airline by market share, IndiGo celebrated their 9th birthday by firming up their last year’s commitment and ordering 250 A320neo Family aircraft. This historical aircraft purchase agreement was signed on the 69th Independence Day of India on the 15th of August, 2015.

Aditya Ghosh, President of IndiGo said, “This new order further reaffirms IndiGo’s commitment to the long-term development of affordable air transportation in India and overseas. The additional fuel efficient A320neo aircraft will enable us to continue to bring our low fares and courteous, hassle free service to more customers and markets and will create more job opportunities and growth. The IndiGo team is even more energised and excited than ever before to herald this new phase of our growth for many years to come.”

IndiGo placed an order in 2005 for 100 A320s which have all now been delivered. In 2011 IndiGo became the first Indian operator to commit to the A320neo bringing their total to 280 Airbus aircraft. With today’s announcement, IndiGo has ordered 530 A320 Family aircraft with Airbus.

“It fills us with pride that IndiGo, India’s largest airline and one of the early launch customers for the A320neo, is coming back for more of our benchmark aircraft. This order confirms the A320 Family as the airliner of choice in the most dynamic aviation growth markets. We thank IndiGo and its Co-Founders, Rakesh Gangwal and Rahul Bhatia for their tremendous vote of confidence,” said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer Customers.

The A320neo “new engine option” incorporates many innovations, including latest generation engines and large Sharklet wing-tip devices, which together deliver 15 percent in fuel savings from day one and 20 per cent by 2020. This is equivalent to a reduction of 5,000 tonnes of CO2 per aircraft per year.

The A320 Family is the world’s best-selling single aisle product line with over 11,800 orders to date and more than 6,600 aircraft delivered to 400 customers and operators worldwide. With this order the A320neo order backlog is catapulted to over 4100 aircraft, clearly underpinning its market leading position. Thanks to its widest cabin, all members of the A320 Family offer the industry’s best level of comfort in all classes and Airbus’ 18” wide seats in economy as standard.

Boeing is forecasting demand for 1,740 new commercial aircraft in India over the next 20 years, with the majority of the requirements in the narrowbody market segment.

In its 20-year forecast, the airframer expects the Indian market to require 1,460 new single-aisle jets, 260 widebodies and 20 regional jets. This represents 4.6% of the forecast deliveries worldwide, amounting to some $240 billion in value.

Boeing projects worldwide demand for 38,050 new aircraft over the next 20 years, about 38% of which will come from Asia.

“India’s economy and the country’s potential for air travel growth – both for leisure and business – continues to be strong and we remain confident in the Indian commercial aerospace market,” says Dinesh Keskar, senior vice president of Asia Pacific and India sales at Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

The number of low-cost carrier in the country is also expected to grow to cover more than 30% of the Indian market, adds Boeing.

Nao se esquecam que sao 1,3bi de pessoas!


Ate que se prove o contrario, se pelo menos 10% puder usar aviao, ja estamos falando de 2/3 do Brasil voando!

Sim meu caro, a Índia tem muito mais gente por m² que a China, mas o quanto efetivamente esta população voa. Ainda há muitos pobres por lá.


No passado a Air India, Kingfischer e Jet Airways inundaram o mercado indiano de aeronaves, o resultado foi uma crise muito séria que ainda hoje elas não se recuperaram.
