Nice. The colour scheme looks better on the A320's longer sibling.

IndiGo aircraft get Michelin tyres for its entire fleet: Claims better fuel efficiency

November 21, 2018

French tyre maker, Michelin and India's low-cost airline, IndiGo has entered a long-term partnership to supply Michelin tyres for its Airbus and ATR fleet and claims that it will offer a better proposition for its passengers by changing to these environment-friendly Michelin Air tyres. Globally, Michelin is also a reputed tyre maker for cars and SUVs.

IndiGo has been buying customer-friendly & fuel efficient A320 NEO family aircraft, for which Michelin also happens to be an OE tire supplier.

Frank Moreau, President of Michelin Aircraft Tyre, commented: “We have developed truly high-technology tires that are perfectly adapted to the needs of the airlines. This means that we not only combined a high level of safety in extreme conditions and guarantee a large number of landings, but also allow fuel efficiency and environment friendliness”.

Michelin AIR X radial tyre claims to reduce the overall operational costs through an increased number of aircraft and better fuel efficiency and is more resistant towards foreign object damage. The radial casing design on these tyres is designed to utilize fewer components and use less fuel leading to less CO2 emissions.

This new partnership between IndiGo & Michelin is poised to bring higher value to the Indian aviation market with enhanced safety and being more eco-friendly.

IndiGo first airline to fly 50 lakh domestic passengers in a month

Nov 23, 2018

In a first for Indian airlines, IndiGo has flown more than 50 lakh domestic passengers in a month.
This feat was achieved in October 2018 when the low-cost carrier had 196 aircrafts and is on its way to become the first desi carrier to cross 200-mark in fleet size.

https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/business/india-business/indigo-to-charge-for-all-seats-from-flyers-doing-web-check-in-other-budget-airlines-to-follow-suit/articleshow/66795195.cms

IndiGo to charge for all web check-ins

Nov 26, 2018

IndiGo flyers doing web check-in to skip long queues at airports will need to pay for this service too. The domestic market leader on Sunday said it will charge “for all seats from passengers doing web check-in.” With IndiGo having 43% market share in domestic skies, other low cost carriers are likely to follow suit.

What this means is that people travelling solo or in groups okay with sitting separately and opting for the free middle row while doing web check-in will also need to pay up. According to the low cost carrier website, seat selection charges on IndiGo domestic flights are Rs 600 for any seat in row 1, 12 and 13; Rs 300 for any seat in rows 2 to 10; and Rs 200 for any seat in row 11 and the window and aisle seats from row 14 to 20.

The seats with no selection fees are middle ones in row 14 to 20 and all seats in row 21 to 30. People choosing these seats at web check-in till now were not required to pay any fees. Something which has now been discontinued for web check-in, making it a paid service.

The airline in message to passengers said: “As per our revised policy, all seats will be chargeable for web check-in. Alternatively, you may check-in at the airport for free. Seats will be assigned as per the availability.”

An IndiGo spokesperson said: “Based on consumer preferences, we have made some changes in pricing for advance selection of seats. While different prices for different category of seats were always there, we have further refined the price categories based on the consumer preferences observed. This is a usual practice followed by most airlines globally and in India. We are continuously evaluating consumer preferences and making pricing adjustments as per consumer demand.”

IndiGo on Thursday became the first Indian carrier to have 200 aircraft in its fleet with a brand new Airbus A320 Neo (VT-IZI) flying into Delhi from Toulouse, France, to join the low cost carrier.

IndiGo in talks with Qatar, Turkish Airlines to expand global footprint

December 12, 2018

IndiGo is in talks with Qatar Airways and Turkish Airlines for commercial partnerships, including interline and codeshares, as the carrier looks to expand its international footprint. An interline or codeshare is a commercial arrangement between airlines, which allow them to sell on each others’ network. Such a tie-up would be a first for IndiGo, which is the country’s largest airline.

The airline has 202 aircraft, a mix of Airbus A320s and ATR 72s and will be inducting its first Airbus A321neo later this month. The A321s have 222 seats and a longer range than the A320s.

IndiGo plans to use the A321s on new routes to Istanbul and start one-stop services to Europe via Central Asia. Commercial partnerships with airlines will help IndiGo increase seat occupancy and generate revenue from international routes. But such tie-ups will be a challenge, given its no-frills business model.

While overseas operations still account for less than 10 per cent of IndiGo’ total daily flights, it is nonetheless fast growing. The airline has launched new destinations – Male, Phuket, and Hong Kong - and introduced a service between Amritsar-Dubai and Vijayawada-Singapore. It has also expanded services to Abu Dhabi, Doha, and Kuwait. Currently, it serves 15 overseas destinations with 115 daily flights.
