IndiGo plans to operate non-stop flights between India and Europe, Ronojoy Dutta, Chief executive officer of the airline, said on Thursday.
“That is why we have ordered the airbus extra Long-range aircraft,” Dutta said at a conference called to announce IndiGo’s codeshare partnership with Qatar Airways. The aircraft was ordered by IndiGo earlier this month as part of a 300- aircraft deal with airbus.
IndiGo’s codeshare partnership with Qatar Airways can at the start get on 3 routes — Bida to city, Hyderabad, and Mumbai.
Akbar Al Baker, Chief executive of the Qatar Airways Group, said Qatar Airways’ passengers can get the same amenities and baggage allowance when they travel on IndiGo flights.
“The tie-up with Qatar Airways won’t affect the tie-up which IndiGo has with Turkish Airlines,” the IndiGo chief executive officer said. In December last year, IndiGo and Turkish Airlines had declared a code-share and mutual cooperation.
