India's ambitious budget airline IndiGo will start international operations in August, the company said in a statement last week, only days after it placed a huge order for 180 new aircraft. The Aviation Ministry has approved IndiGo's proposal to launch services to Singapore, Bangkok, Dubai and Muscat.
Privately-owned, IndiGo is the rising star in the booming Indian industry, which saw passenger numbers leap 25% year on year in November 2010. The airline currently has a fleet of 34 Airbus ‘planes and offers 221 daily flights to 24 destinations across India. The US$15bn deal to buy 180 A320 aircraft is the largest number of Airbus 'planes ever ordered in one go. http://book.goindigo.in
