IndiGo Airlines (6E, Delhi Int'l) is considering converting part of its order with Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) for 405 A320neo to A321neo (LR)s, the Financial Express has reported. The conversion will most likely cover 20-25 aircraft slated for delivery during Fiscal Year 2018-19, according to inside sources.
The new aircraft could be used for new medium- and long-haul services planned by the carrier. IndiGo recently applied for route authorities to a number of European destinations which would supplement its existing international regional network to the Gulf region, South East Asia, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.
