IndiGo, the finest airline in India and has a simple philosophy: offer fares that are always affordable, flights that are on time, and a hassle-free travel experience. Since its inception in August of 2006, IndiGo has consistently maintained its trajectory of growth. IndiGo has changed the way, Indians perceived low fare airlines to be. At IndiGo low cost doesn't mean low quality. Yet, IndiGo has remained true to the low cost model and not strayed from its original business model.

IndiGo is a pure low cost carrier in the classic sense of the model. Our success is based on producing at the lowest cost of operation. Controlling costs is a way of life at IndiGo and not just a temporary fad. IndiGo employs one type of aircraft, high density seating, higher aircraft utilization, sale of food and beverages onboard, outsourcing of certain activities etc to reduce costs and enhance revenues. IndiGo uses state-of-the-art technology in sales and distribution, operations control, flight planning, maintenance control, fuel management and crew scheduling. This is achieved through hundreds of initiatives – many of which are proprietary to IndiGo.

With its fleet of 49 brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft , the airline offer 295 daily flights connecting 31 (26 domestic + 5 International) destinations including Agartala, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Bangkok, Bhubaneshwar, Chennai, Coimbatore, Delhi, Dubai, Goa, Guwahati, Dibrugarh ,Hyderabad , Imphal , Indore, Jaipur ,Jammu, Kathmandu, Kochi , Kolkata , Lucknow , Mumbai , Muscat, Nagpur , Patna , Pune, Raipur, Singapore, Srinagar, Trivandrum, and Vadodara
