Indigo has Code Share Agreement with Turkish Airlines 

He also informed about the code share agreement with the Turkish Airlines and stated,

 “We are having 27 points precise in Europe which covers the UK, France, Italy, Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, and so many more points. These points have multiple frequencies with Turkish airlines and with our partnership with them as a codeshare we are able to carry passengers from India to Istanbul and from Istanbul to beyond. Within India too with our 76 online points, we are able to funnel people from all over India into Delhi and Mumbai further to Istanbul and then beyond to Europe,” 

Inigo Welcomes Competition in Indian Aviation Sector

He also apprised about the competition in the Indian Aviation market without taking the name of Air India,

“Competition is always welcomed. India has currently approximately 7.3 percent more than 100 million people who have a passport. As Indian people get a passport the first thing they want to do is fly overseas. There is huge potential for travellers who are aspiring to travel within India or overseas. So we are in the right place at the right time to take people beyond the borders of India.”

Malhotra also shared the expansion plans of Indigo and the requirements which has emerged for multiple aircrafts,

“We are currently flying a little over 300 aircraft and we are whopping nearly 500 more on order. Off course, the expansion depends a lot on the frequency and the timing of when we get an aircraft. But as and when the aircraft is coming, they will be deployed in some into the domestic market and some overseas.” 

He also stated that in future , Indigo will launch new points one would be in Nairobi, Kenya and the other would be in Jakarta, Indonesia. On being asked why people would prefer Indigo to go to other Airlines and not other airlines,

“We are offering the best connectivity to Europe and IndiGo assures people of hassle-free carrier service, on-time performance, and affordable fares.”
