NewsIn 2023, IndiGo made history by carrying 100 million passengers


After transporting 100 million passengers in a year, low-cost airline Indigo has gained entry into the exclusive group of international airlines. After reaching the historic milestone in 2023, the airline was ranked among the top 10 largest carriers worldwide in terms of passenger volume. This year marks the airline’s 17th anniversary, and it became one of the fastest to reach this milestone. The airline is based in Gurugram. More than 78 million passengers were served by IndiGo’s aviation services in 2022 on both domestic and international networks. The total number has increased by 23% this year.

This is how the top officials at IndiGo reacted.

Pieter Elbers, the airline’s chief executive officer, responded to the historic milestone by saying, “We are extremely delighted to welcome 100 million passengers abroad in a year,” according to the details made public. This accomplishment also serves as confirmation of our well-executed plan.

IndiGo has been working hard over the past six months to expand its network on both domestic and international routes. It recently expanded its network by adding more than 20 new international routes, solidifying its position as the world’s leading airline.

This historic number is the outcome of our customers’ love and trust, as well as the dedication and passion of all Indigo employees.

Over the course of the last six months, Indigo has added more than 20 international routes to its network, increasing its worldwide footprint. The airline has been working to improve its domestic connectivity at the same time. According to the release, Indigo has big plans to keep up this growth trajectory in the near future by adding popular locations to its network, like Medina, Saudi Arabia, and Bali, Indonesia.

With a commanding 61.8% share of passengers carried in November—nearly six times higher than second-place Air India—Indigo dominated the domestic market. The airline is in the process of growing both its fleet and network, as evidenced by its historic order of 500 Airbus A320 family aircraft earlier this year. With ongoing orders and future shipments, IndiGo currently has an amazing backlog of nearly 1,000 aircraft that will be delivered over the course of the next ten years.

Today marks the arrival of the tenth brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft operated by IndiGo, the low-cost domestic airline that is revolutionizing the standards of airline quality in India. In an effort to expand its route network, IndiGo began operating this aircraft on June 24, 2007, linking Nagpur to Delhi and Pune. The same aircraft will also continue to operate in Bangalore. Our tenth aircraft is one of the first A320s to include a redesigned interior with additional space, as well as redesigned overhead cabins, ceilings, and windows, stated Mr. Bruce Ashby, President and CEO of IndiGo, in a statement regarding this milestone. In order to support the growth plan and achieve its goals of doubling in size and scale by the end of this decade, IndiGo launched a growth strategy in 2022 under the three strategic pillars of reassuring, developing, and creating. The airline placed an unprecedented order with Airbus for 500 new aircraft to support these goals. In addition to the previous orders for more than 450 aircraft, IndiGo has placed this order.
