On Thursday (April 25, 2024), IndiGo announced that they have placed a firm order for 30 Airbus A350-900s, which will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engines.  This follows IndiGo’s largest-ever single order by any airline for 500 Airbus aircraft in June 2023.  Currently, Indigo operates over 350 aircraft, and their Airbus A320 Family orderbook stands at nearly 1,000 jets, including A320neos, A321neos, and A321XLRs.  In addition to the firm order for 30 Airbus A350-900s, IndiGo has also secured purchase rights for 70 additional A350 Family aircraft.

In Thursday’s announcement, IndiGo’s CEO, Pieter Elbers, said.

“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.”

New Delhi, India-based IndiGo is one of the fastest growing airlines in the world.  The carrier operates a fleet of over 350 aircraft, and operates over 2,000 daily flights with service to 86 domestic and 33 international destinations.  IndiGo’s philosophy is to offer affordable fares, on-time flights, and to provide a courteous and hassle-free guest experience.
