IndiGo focus on expanding China ops, third destination soon

New Delhi: After expanding its reach via codeshare to Europe in the West, India''s airline major IndiGo is now focusing singularly on expanding operations to China and beyond.

As a strategy, the airline currently has limited its own flight operations to the edges of Asia, spanning from Istanbul in the west, Hong Kong to the east and Ho Chi Minh City on the Southeast Asia side.

Subsequently, it utilises a codeshare pact with Turkish Airways to connect passengers to over 10 European destinations from the western limit of its operations.

Furthermore, the airline is expected to utilise its new codeshare pact with Qatar Airways in a similar fashion. It recently entered into a one-way codeshare pact with the Doha-based passenger carrier.

The deal between the two carriers will enable Qatar Airways to place its code on IndiGo flights between Doha and Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad.

In aviation parlance, a codeshare allows two airlines to sell seats on each others'' flights in order to provide passengers with a wider choice of destinations.

However, it is East Asia, particularly China, Indigo has set its sights on to expand international expansion.
