IndiGo plans budget business class seats for Europe-Asia travellers

Published on : Thursday, May 16, 2019

Indigo is considering budget business class seats for the Europe-Asia market. It currently flies as far as Istanbul and is mapping out an ambitious long-distance network. The airline aims to start one-stop trips further into Europe within six months.




Economical, punctual flights and charging extra for almost anything else, IndiGo has captured almost half the Indian market in just over a decade.




Chief Executive Officer Ronojoy Dutta feels that once a passenger is there for 6+ hours, the body gets tired, the washroom usage increases, and things change. They are planning a product overhaul to help passengers endure long flights including everything from extra snacks to a brand-new business class.




IndiGo wants to operate one-stop flights to cities like London from New Delhi, while flying non-stop to countries like China, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Russia. It’s in talks with Airbus SE to buy a yet-to-be-released longer version of the European planemaker’s newest narrow-body jet. Dutta confirmed that the airline is preparing to place a ‘large’ order.




IndiGo already flies to 53 domestic and 18 international destinations and plans to deploy about half of its new capacity on international routes.




Fuel is typically among an airline’s biggest expenses and the airline faces rising oil prices as it So far, a long-haul market between Asia and Europe is long been the preserve of full-service carriers from Singapore Airlines Ltd. and British Airways to Emirates Airline and Cathay Pacific Airways.
