Indian Carrier IndiGo To Buy Even More A321neos

Bloomberg, commenting that IndiGo is adding aircraft to its fleet “every week,” interviewed the airline’s CEO Ronojoy Dutta. The CEO revealed that after the carriers existing orders are delivered over the next two years, it may add more of the A321neo LR and the even newer A321 XLR.
According to Quartz India, IndiGo will add 25 A321neos to its fleet this year. This, as well as booking a total of 430 jets from the A320neo family and upgrading 125 of its existing fleet order to A321neos.
Dutta says:
Bloomberg predicts a multi-billion-dollar deal, based on the value of past orders. The smallest order placed by IndiGo in 2005 for 100 A320 jets was worth $6 billion at the time. Though the latest order hasn’t yet been finalized. And, CEO Dutta also hasn’t ruled out spending with Boeing.

The Indian airline, according to Flight Global, took delivery of its first A321neo on December 28, 2018. The first of the Airbus aircraft for India. The A321neo’s arrival opened up new routes to Europe for IndiGo.
