IndiGo on the International scene

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.
