IndiGo, the low-fare domestic airline that is redefining airline quality standards in India, started service today to Agartala, its 14th destination. IndiGo will connect Agartala to Kolkata and onward to Hyderabad and Bangalore on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, with its ninth brand-new Airbus A320. Speaking on the additional services from Agartala,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 nine brand new A320s, and we now offer convenient services from Agartala to Kolkata and onward to Hyderabad and Bangalore. As we continue to add aircraft, we will continue to expand the destinations we offer, and always at affordable fares. Enhancing connectivity between Agartala, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Bangalore is just one more way to add affordable, convenient services for our customers. Weve already proved that the demand for an airline that provides fares that are always affordable, runs on time, and takes the hassles out of travel is quite high. 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, he further added. The airline currently operates 58 daily flights with a fleet of nine brand new A320 aircraft and flies to 14 destinations, including Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Goa, Guwahati, Imphal, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Vadodara and Agartala. 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.
