IndiGo, the low-fare domestic airline that is redefining airline quality standards in India, will start operating its ninth brand-new Airbus A320, commencing daily services between Mumbai Bangalore, Bangalore Kolkata, Bangalore - Hyderabad and Kolkata - Hyderabad and back from April 07, 2007 at convenient timings. Speaking on the additional services,Mr. Bruce Ashby, President and CEO, IndiGo,said, "At IndiGo, we are steadily building our route network. After launching operations in August 2006, we have taken delivery of our ninth airplane, and we now offer convenient non-stop services across India. IndiGo started operations in August 2006, and we have been steadily building a great airline. Before the end of April, IndiGo will have carried more than one million passengers. And during these last months we have built an airline that has accomplished some amazing things. For example, despite significant congestion at some of our key airports, and fog and other bad weather issues that affect all airlines, four out of five IndiGo flights have departed within 30 minutes of scheduled departure, and 9 out of 10 IndiGo flights have departed within one hour of scheduled departure. Excluding unpreventable fog-related cancellations, we have cancelled only one tenth of one percent of our flights; and even including fog-related cancellations, 99 out of 100 IndiGo flights have been completed. When you put together our outstanding operational performance with the kind of touches that make IndiGo stand out such as brand new airplanes, comfortable seats, superior staff, air conditioned buses, and hassle-reducing innovations like our handheld check-in devices, web check-in, and aircraft boarding ramps (instead of stairs), we think that IndiGo has redefined the standards for low-fare carriers in India. The airline currently operates 58 daily flights with a fleet of nine brand new A320 aircraft and flies to 13 destinations, including Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Goa, Guwahati, Imphal, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune and Vadodara. IndiGo will take delivery of six additional brand-new A320 aircraft this year, taking the fleet size to 15 by the end of 2007. It plans to serve approximately 30 Indian cities by 2010, with a fleet of approximately 40 A320s
