Decoding IndiGo’s Mega Global Flight Plan

  1. IndiGo, India’s largest airline, is shifting its focus to international expansion as it has already achieved a 60%+ market share in the domestic market.

  2. The airline is targeting international routes to less common destinations, where it can establish an early lead as many Indians seek new tourist spots.

  3. Starting in 2024, IndiGo will receive a fleet of 49 Airbus A321XLR planes, enabling it to offer long-haul international flights to destinations in Europe, Asia, and more.

  4. This strategic expansion aims to position IndiGo as a major global player in the aviation industry.
