Re: Indian Aviation Thread - 2018 (2)

Another second hand A320 for IndiGo has been delivered, this must be a former Royal Brunei plane which was built in 2004 (first on Tiger Airways as 9V-TAA). The other one is 2 former Qatar Airways A320 which was built in 2003. I think there will be more second hand A320s coming in fleet soon.
