Leader Comments


Commenting on their latest growth into Europe, IndiGo’s Head of Global Sales, Mr. Vinay Malhotra, said: “We are extremely pleased to add more capacity between India and Europe during this holiday season, given the high demand for international travel.”

“These flights will cater to travellers exploring Italy and UK, with one stop connections to Milan, Manchester, Birmingham, Rome, and Venice via Istanbul. These new routes will not only strengthen international connectivity but also enhance affordability for travel to Europe.”

“We will continue to strive to stay true to our promise of affordable fares, on-time performance, courteous and hassle-free service.”

Overall


It is great to see IndiGo expanding their codesharing options through Turkish Airlines to reach much more of Europe.

Maybe this is a sign to come for them, especially once the carrier receives the A321XLR’s they have on order, we may see them operating their own services to Europe rather than just the connections through Istanbul.
