The IndiGo philosophy of three pillars – Low fares, on time performance and a Courteous, hassle-free travel experience has seen the airline soar to new heights. These philosophies have also helped us create a global airline and a great place to work in. The airline in twelve years has grown from a carrier with one plane to a 175 (as on July 2018) without compromising on quality and consistency. IndiGo today is the most reliable airline with one of the highest technical dispatch reliabilities (A320 – 99.82% & ATR – 99.65%) making it an airline with the least number of cancellations in India.

With a fleet of 175 aircraft, 165 being the Airbus A320 and 10 new ATR aircraft, the airline offers approximately 1195 daily flights connecting 46 domestic destinations. IndiGo currently operates international flights to 9 destinations - Bangkok, Dubai, Kathmandu, Muscat, Singapore, Doha, Sharjah, Colombo and Dhaka. The first international flight commenced on September 01, 2011. Since its inception, IndiGo has flown over 267 million passengers (as on 31st July 2018).

The airline has focused on keeping fares low yet providing superior quality service. Our values of “Integrity, Customer Orientation and Future Mindedness” have helped us push our limits to reach for the sky without ever forgetting that these very values are what ground us as people.

These achievements have been a result of not just pursuing excellence in all that we do, but also striving to build a unique brand and culture. IndiGo, as a part of InterGlobe Enterprises, has been ranked as one of the best companies to work for by the Great Places to Work Institute nine years in a row.
