IndiGo is one of the newer entrants in the budget airline market in India and they have just received the delivery of their first brand new Airbus A320 aircraft.
The company took the delivery of this craft at the Airbus factory at Toulouse (France).
IndiGo had placed orders for 100 brand new 180-seater A320 family aircrafts and they now plan to introduce a new A320-232 aircraft every month during the remainder of 2006. Next year would see them introduce nine more planes.
