IndiGo, the low-fare domestic airline that is redefining airline quality standards in India, will take delivery of its 14th brand new Airbus A320 aircraft from Airbus in Toulouse, France on November 13, 2007. IndiGo will operate new daily flights connecting Bhubaneshwar to Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore November 17th onwards. Bhubaneshwar is the 16th destination on IndiGos network. Speaking on the new services from Bhubaneshwar,Mr. Bruce Ashby, President and CEO, IndiGo,said, At IndiGo, we are steadily building our route network. After launching operations in August 2006, IndiGo has now carried over 3 million passengers on approx 24,000 flights, and this number is increasing every day. We are further consolidating our presence in India by strengthening our connectivity in the cities we already serve. When you put together our affordable fares and 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. As part of IndiGos quality service to its customers, the airline now offers a wide array of food and beverages for sale on board its flights. These include freshly made sandwiches, packed juices, aerated drinks, nuts, and cookies. With its 14th aircraft, the airline now operates 102 daily flights flying to 16 destinations, including Agartala, Bangalore, Bhubaneshwar, Chennai, Delhi, Goa, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Imphal, Jaipur, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune and Vadodara. IndiGo will take delivery of one 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.
