IndiGo was also named the world’s fastest growing airline in March, with a frequency increase of 41.3 percent. It was also one of the top ten airlines in the world in terms of seat capacity.
According to the UK-based Official Airline Guide, IndiGo, India’s low-cost carrier, was the world’s sixth largest carrier by passenger volume in March (OAG).
According to data collected until March 28, the airline carried more than 2.02 million passengers in the month, the most of any Asian carrier.
With a 41.3 percent increase in frequency in March, IndiGo was named the world’s fastest growing airline by OAG. In March, the airline was also among the top ten airlines in the world by seat capacity.
Based on monthly data, the OAG data includes airport and route capacity, as well as a list of the 20 largest global airlines by flights. IndiGo is the only Indian airline to make this list.
"It's exciting to see IndiGo among the top airlines in the world," said Ronojoy Dutta, IndiGo's full-time director and chief executive. It's also a source of pride for India, and a sign that the country is recovering quickly from the pandemic. We anticipate more routes and frequencies being opened as restrictions around the world are eased. This will allow an even larger number of passengers to take advantage of our lean, clean flying machine's affordable, on-time, safe, and hassle-free travel experience.
In April, the airline announced the resumption of scheduled operations of more than 150 international flights from various Indian airports. IndiGo has also added several new domestic routes to its network.
