IndiGo Places Massive Order for 500 Airbus A320 Family Aircraft

June 19, 2023

PARIS AIR SHOW (DAY 1), 19 JUN | After lots of speculation, the largest-ever single aircraft purchase by any airline with Airbus has been placed by Indian low-cost-carrier, IndiGo, at the first day of the iconic Paris Air Show 2023.

The new aircraft order includes a mix of Airbus A320neos, A321neos, and A321XLR aircraft, which is expected to be delivered between 2030 and 2035. The airline now has a grand total of 1000 airframes on order. This comes just months after a record-breaking order for 500+ aircraft by local competitor Air India- these 2 orders combined will lead to the rapid expansion of the Indian aviation industry.

While initial sources predicted the airline would purchase widebody aircraft- namely the A330neo, the airline has opted otherwise, ordering the ultra-long-haul variant of the A321 among others. These new aircraft will help to boost connectivity within India and way beyond! The airline is the largest A320 family aircraft operator in the world by a landslide, especially with the boost of this order, since the airline's fleet comprises of only the type.
