Airbus Delivers 1,000th A320neo Family Aircraft to IndiGo

During a ceremony in Toulouse, Airbus celebrated the delivery of the 1,000th aircraft from its popular A320neo family. IndiGo will lease the new airplane, an A321-271neo, from CDB Aviation.

“We are delighted to add another A321neo in our fleet as we continue to expand our domestic and international operations. The A320 family has enhanced the cost and fuel-efficiency in IndiGo’s operations and will strengthen this proposition in future…”

Ronojoy Dutta, IndiGo’s Chief Executive Officer

CDB Aviation is an Irish subsidiary of the China Development Bank’s financial leasing arm. It plans to follow this delivery with the leasing of an additional eight A321neo aircraft to IndiGo, pursuant to a sale-and-leaseback transaction.
