IndiGo, India’s leading airline, has committed to acquiring 30 Airbus A350-900 aircraft, a move aimed at bolstering its presence in long-haul destinations worldwide.

As India’s aviation market experiences rapid growth, driven by a flourishing economy and increasing household incomes, the demand for international travel is poised to surge. The A350 is ideally suited to meet the nation’s evolving needs for long-distance journeys.

By opting for the A350, IndiGo reaffirms its enduring partnership with Airbus and underscores the aircraft’s status as the premier choice for long-haul air travel. This decision reflects IndiGo’s confidence in Airbus and its commitment to meeting the growing demands of the Indian aviation landscape.

“Today’s historic moment marks a new chapter for IndiGo and will further shape the future of the airline and for Indian aviation at the same time. For IndiGo, after successfully pioneering the Indian skies with an unprecedented journey, its fleet of 30 Airbus A350-900 aircraft will allow IndiGo to embark on its next phase of becoming one of the leading global aviation players. At IndiGo, we take pride in being India’s preferred airline and for offering connectivity to our customers, in and with India. This reaffirms IndiGo’s belief in, and commitment to, the growth of India, and in our strategic partnership with Airbus,” said Pieter Elbers, CEO, IndiGo.

“A heartfelt thank you to IndiGo for putting its trust in Airbus once again, and to our respective teams who negotiated this agreement for 30 A350s. IndiGo’s first widebody order opens an exciting new chapter in our close partnership. We are proud that our fuel-efficient, next-generation A320 Family revolutionised domestic air travel in India, and that now the A350 is poised to replicate the same success on long-haul routes,” Benoît de Saint-Exupéry, Airbus EVP Sales, Commercial Aircraft.

For over fifty years, Airbus has been intricately linked with India, fostering a mutually beneficial relationship that has propelled the country’s civil aviation sector forward. The Airbus A320 Family has played a pivotal role in democratizing air travel within India, while the A350 has emerged as the premier choice for Indian carriers seeking to tap into the global market.

IndiGo stands out as one of the world’s fastest-growing airlines, boasting a substantial fleet of A320 Family aircraft.

At the forefront of innovation, the A350 stands as the epitome of modernity and efficiency in the 300-410 seater category.
