Indian aviation company, IndiGo, is in talks to expand its services in the Sultanate of Oman. The airline currently has flights flying directly to Mumbai, Kochi, and Hyderabad from Muscat and previously also flew to cities such as Chennai, Delhi, and Calicut, among others. 

In a recent conversation with the Observer, CEO Pieter Elbers stated, “We remain open to the option, as the Gulf is a crucial part of our network. We operate 210 flights per week to Gulf destinations, including Muscat, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah. We will continue expanding in Oman. There is still potential for growth and further development of our current operations. Our expansion efforts are not limited to Oman but extend throughout the region. This broad approach to growth is a key aspect of Indigo.”

Elbers mentioned that the company has 3 years to decide how to deploy A350s. Currently, the airline operates a fleet of 182 A320s, 94 A321 neos, 45 ATRs, and two 777s, and it services 121 destinations, including 33 international trips from India.

IndiGo CEO said, “We have many corporate customers. Over the last 19 years, Indigo has evolved beyond a traditional low-cost airline operating between secondary airports. We now operate from all major airports in India with high frequency, have code-share partners, and offer extensive connectivity.”

“This step is a natural progression for Indigo as it grows alongside India’s development. We’ve also made flying accessible to many Indians who couldn’t afford it in the past but can now. The Indian market is unique, and we continue to welcome first-time flyers,” added Pieter Elbers.
