IndiGo orders another 300 A320neo-family jets

"The deal, described by the airframer as "one of Airbus's largest aircraft orders ever with a single airline operator", brings IndiGo's A320neo-family total to 730." (Bold is mine)


To put that into perspective, easyJet currently has a fleet of 332 aircraft with 109 on order (according to Wikipedia). The largest LCC in the world, Southwest Airlines, currently has a fleet of 751 (with 276 on order).

Assuming each aircraft operates 4 flights a day that would represent just over 1 million flights a year.

Puts the 240,000 new movements that a third LHR runway would allow into perspective!

Wow, that's quite some order. I'd have enough problems raising the finance for a new bicycle!!

Sounds promising but when, if ever, will we see an end product?

(Could be asked of any Indian carrier really)
