IndiGo takes the delivery of the 2000th A320neo family aircraft from Airbus

Kolkata, Dec 2 (INI) In line with its vision for sustainability, IndiGo has been replacing its old fleet with the fuel efficient neo aircraft.
The airline took the delivery of the 2000th A320neo family aircraft on Tuesday, which follows two years after the airline also received the 1000th A320neo aircraft in 2019, despite the challenges posed by the pandemic. The IndiGo aircraft MSN10654, an A321 neo, produced and delivered in Hamburg, Germany.
On the occasion, Ronojoy Dutta, Chief Executive Officer, IndiGo, said, “IndiGo was early to recognise the fuel efficiency and performance of the A320neo family, which resulted in large orders for neo family aircraft. The vision was not only to increase the efficiency, but also the sustainability of the fleet. IndiGo took delivery of the 1,000th A320neo Family aircraft produced in 2019 and just two years later is taking delivery of the 2,000th aircraft. This continued induction of Neo family aircraft despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, is a testament to the airline’s unrelenting commitment to sustainable aviation and the fuel efficiency of the A320neo Family.”
