IndiGo Operates 1500 Flights Per Day

Low-cost Indian airline IndiGo is now operating 1,500 domestic flights per day. Just twelve months ago, the airline was chuffed to have 1,000 domestic flights per day. But the airline says this new benchmark is just business as usual and the growth is in line with its projected expansion capacity.

According to a report in, the airline hit the 1,500 domestic flights per day figure earlier this month. It now has a departure approximately every one minute. In a statement, IndiGo’s chief executive officer, Ronojoy Dutta said;

“We are pleased to be the first Indian airline to touch 1,500 daily departures, with one flight taking off every minute.

“2019 has been an eventful year with many new partnerships, orders and milestones. We are optimistic about 2020, and our endeavor will be to build focus cities and traffic corridors that connect India to the world.”

IndiGo has only been operating for 13 years. With the demise of Jet Airways, it is now the biggest airline in India in terms of fleet size and passenger numbers. It now has 249 planes (the majority being from the A320 family) and carried over 64 million passengers in the last financial year.

For much of the last decade, IndiGo has been expanding at a decent clip. And like many Indian airlines, it is now picking up Jet Airways passengers and mopping up growth opportunities from its collapse.
