Sorry in French !

Indigo is looking at all airplane manufacturers in view to order up to 150 planes in the 2 or 3 years to come.

As they are now a 5 years old Indian airline they can go international.Not mentionned if international means long haul for them , neither if they want to buy WBs , NBs , Regional Jets or turboprops.

In my mind , they will probably order another batch of A32Xs.

Somebody in India can give us more precise informations about their intent ?

I expect them to order A320/A321 NEO, and perhaps some ATRs/RJs. As for RJs, Embraer has the best shot.

As for wide bodies, Airbus has the advantage due to its ongoing relationship. I should add that Indigo has stated that they will consider all manufacturers.

The Indian IndiGo plans to buy 150 planes within three years

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Indian airline low cost IndiGo has received approval from New Delhi to buy 150 aircraft over the next two or three years the group wishing to develop international flights, says one of its leaders.

IndiGo will have completed five years of activity in August 2011, which will give him the right to offer flights to foreign countries.

"We look at all manufacturers," said Rahul Bhatia, the CEO of InterGlobe Enterprises, the parent of the airline. He did not say how the group had to spend on these planes.

Booming Indian aviation sector has nearly a dozen companies and seeks to expand its fleet as strong economic growth supports the air transport market.

Boeing, Airbus to compete with the sale of appliances in India, believes the country will buy 1,150 commercial aircraft for an estimated $ 130 billion (101 billion euros) during the next twenty years.

Rahul Bhatia also said that Indigo does not provide the immediate go public.

According to two sources, the company had hired four banks to prepare for its IPO to raise 400 million dollars.

Interesting, this was one of the orders a few years ago that was viewed with some scepticism but they've now taken 32 of their oiginal 100 A320s.

Personally I'd be very suprised if they went mixed fleet on the shorthaul and expect to see some A330s added for the start of international ops.

What if Boeing offers a new design? Will they opt for more A320s?

I think it has less to do with what if, rather then when.
A new design from Boeing will not be available before (my guess) 2018 at earliest.
A320 NEO will come around before that.
And if it doesn't IndiGo will settle with A320's that already fits with their fleet.

As a fast growing LCC I suspect that IndiGo will need their planes much earlier than Boeing can deliver their new design.

Wouldn't the Superjet made by Sukhoi be a good candidate?
It did rather well on Farnoborough, also outside the former CIS countries and capacity and range wise it could work very well in India.

Also there seem to be lots of ties between the Indian aeronautics industry and Sukhoi, so why not.
It probably is cheaper than both A and B and maybe even Embraer, also it seems to be very quiet and economical.

just my

What Indigo does depends completely on what they decide to become, a regional international carrier or do they want to expand service into smaller airports. I expect a A320 family order, but involving a change of engines - CFM instead of IAE because the problems the V2500's are having in India of late.


A300B2/B4/6R, A313, A319/320/321, A333, A343, A388, 737-2/3/4/7/8/9, 747-3/4, 772/2E/2L/3, E170/190, F70, CR2/7, 146-3,

What problems are they having with them?



It is what we think we know already that prevents us from learning.......

A320/A321 NEO seem most likely, Boeing seems still thinking. For higher capasity many airlines went for the quick & low risk scenario "A330s within 2 yrs, A350s when mature/available".



Few yrs ago Indigo orders were qualified as Airbus Vaporware..

I do remember that sentiment was held by many on A.net. Indigo is probably the best run airline in India, and I hope they will look into the idea of using WBs to fly to Europe/NE Asia from their hub in DEL in about five years.
