外文标题：IndiGo confirms order for 250 A320s
NEW DELHI: India's largest airline by domestic market share, IndiGo, has firmed up its last year's commitment for ordering 250 A320neo aircraft which have a list price of about $26 billion. This largest-ever aircraft purchase agreement for single aisle planes was signed last Saturday between the airline and Airbus.
IndiGo president Aditya Ghosh said: "This new order further reaffirms IndiGo's commitment to the long-term development of affordable air transportation in India and overseas. The additional fuel efficient A320neo aircraft will enable us to continue to bring our low fares and courteous, hassle free service to more customers and markets and will create more job opportunities and growth. The IndiGo team is energised and excited to herald this new phase of our growth for many years to come."
Airbus COO (customers) John Leahy said: "It fills us with pride that IndiGo, India's largest airline and one of the early launch customers for the A320neo, is coming back for more of our benchmark aircraft.... We thank IndiGo and its co-founders, Rahul Bhatia and Rakesh Gangwal, for their tremendous vote of confidence."
空中客车公司客户事务首席运营官John Leahy表示：“看到印度最大的航空公司，同时也是A320neo最早启动客户之一的IndiGo航空公司再次订购A320neo系列飞机，我们感到非常自豪。我们感谢IndiGo，以及它的联合创始人Rakesh Gangwal先生和Rahul Bhatia先生，感谢你们的支持和极大的信任。
IndiGo had placed an order in 2005 for 100 A320s which have all now been delivered. In 2011, IndiGo became the first Indian operator to commit to the A320neo bringing their total to 280 Airbus aircraft. With the latest announcement, IndiGo has ordered 530 A320 Family aircraft with Airbus.
this is India... now Air Bus should opt for Make in India
There are already plans to setup MRO facility in AndhraPradesh (Anantpur district). AP govt is said to have allocated land (50 acres) for the same already.
Airbus also seeking more land (150 acres) for the expansion.
It already has a RnD wing at Bangalore
so they can build a business and then be hounded out of the country for political reasons like Vodafone, Nokia and Nestle? No, they are not that stupid.
We should make Airbus source more from India.
Indigo getting still ahead of Jet Airways
I don't think IndiGo will use so many planes, they will sell them before delivery at a higher price to some needy airline. IndiGo has an extremely efficient model in place in such a tough industry.

Ordering for 250 aircrafts in one go shows the confidence of Indigo for its future market share.
Wow... why India is incapable of building her own is beyond me? India needs to advance its aerospace industry.
