IndiGo’s Partnership With Turkish Airlines Is A Sign Of Things To Come

While much is spoken about IndiGo’s complete dominance in the Indian domestic market, the airline has been actively pursuing international ambitions. Indian carriers other than Air India have mostly been restricted to medium-haul overseas destinations due to their aircraft size and range restrictions. And while IndiGo has the same limits with its current fleet, its partnership with Turkish Airlines and future fleet expansion plans tell a different story.

Codeshare agreements between airlines have existed for years, and IndiGo is no exception. The budget carrier, in fact, has codeshare partnerships with several global carriers. But its association with Turkish Airlines is slightly special.

With Turkish, IndiGo has access to a much larger pool of destinations across a wider geographical region. The airline’s partnership with Turkish has gone beyond just codeshare, with Turkish Airlines also providing IndiGo two Boeing 777s on wet lease (more on that later).

IndiGo’s communications department has been busy making several announcements in the last few months about gaining access through codeshare partnership to new European destinations (Switzerland, Portugal, Greece, Belgium, the UK, Israel, Austria, and France, among others) and, more recently, Morocco. Many of these places could eventually be part of IndiGo’s network in the future once it inducts compatible aircraft into its fleet.
