Indigo Has Placed An Order For 100 Aircraft To Fly To Smaller Cities

IndiGo: The Center will build more airports in the next five years to increase connectivity in small towns. The existing 148 airports in the country will be increased to 200. With this, some airlines are preparing to run local planes to the newly arrived airports. As part of this, 'Indigo' will buy up to 100 planes. This will increase local connectivity.

India's largest airline 'IndiGo' has placed an order for 100 small planes. ATR (Avions de transport régional) is in talks with Embraer, Airbus to expand its regional network with these aircraft. The airline currently operates 45 ATR-72 aircraft with a seating capacity of 78. It is set to buy five more aircraft this year.

IndiGo is likely to continue its partnership with ATR to leverage economies of scale. However, Airbus A220, Embraer's E-175 aircraft are also being considered, ET report said.

It seems that the decision has been made to strengthen its domestic network and penetrate deeper into the international market. On April 25, the carrier IndiGo placed an order for 30 Airbus A350-900 wide-body aircraft. Apart from the ATRs, which are turboprops, IndiGo's fleet includes the Airbus A320, A321, two Boeing 777s on short-term lease from its codeshare partner Turkish Airlines.

As a carrier responsible for 60 percent of domestic air traffic, IndiGo aims to develop better facilities and regional air connectivity. With the 'Udan' scheme, the central government is looking to increase connectivity to small towns in view of increasing demand for air travel.

ATR earlier said that India will become the largest market in the next ten years with the growth of regional air connectivity. “People want more convenience and a faster route,” said Jean-Pierre Clercin, ATR's head of Asia-Pacific trade, in February. “Other modes of transport are growing but not keeping up with the pace of demand. Hence, regional aviation has a huge role to play.”

IndiGo ordered 50 ATR-72 aircraft in 2017. SpiceJet has entered the regional aviation market previously dominated by Bombardier Q400 aircraft. Since then, IndiGo has expanded its operations, connecting around 60 destinations with these flights, including recently added locations such as Gondia, Lakshadweep, Jagdalpur, Jharsuguda and Dharamshala.

According to an IndiGo executive, the ATR-72s have played a key role in developing the network by taking the 180-seat Airbus A320 to new destinations where there is no traffic at low cost. 'But once IndiGo can establish reliable connectivity, the market size will increase. This will allow the airline to introduce larger A320 or A321 jets.' said the executive.

Smaller planes have given IndiGo greater flexibility. Allows the airline to operate flights between the two cities during off-peak hours. Government officials expect investment in regional connectivity to increase after the elections, recognizing their positive impact on economic productivity.

In January, Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia announced to expand the number of airports from 148 to 200 over the next four years at a cost of Rs. It has been announced that the center has planned an investment of one lakh crores.
