IndiGo, the prominent Indian private low-cost airline headquartered in Gurgaon, India, marked a significant milestone with the commencement of its flights on the Delhi-Tashkent-Delhi route. The inaugural flight on this route, carrying 167 passengers, took off on September 22, making it a momentous occasion in the airline’s journey.
At 23:09 local time in Tashkent, the aircraft touched down at Tashkent airport, where a time-honored tradition of a ceremonial water arch welcome awaited. Uzbekistan Airports, in a statement, highlighted the formal check-in ceremony organized for passengers embarking on their journey to Delhi.
IndiGo has scheduled regular flights on the A-320 aircraft, offering service four times a week, specifically on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The airline’s expansion to include the Delhi-Tashkent route further solidifies its position as India’s largest air carrier in terms of scheduled flights and the number of aircraft in its fleet.
