A cake cutting ceremony was held at Doha Airport on 5 May to celebrate the arrival of IndiGo flights from Delhi and Mumbai. Both routes will be flown by the LCC daily on its fleet of A320s, with both already being served by other carriers.
- IndiGo has launched flights to only its seventh international destination. India’s leading domestic airline, with around 40% of the market, still has a very modest international network. However, on Friday 5 May the LCC began a daily service to Doha (DOH) from both Delhi (DEL) and Mumbai (BOM) using its A320s. Competition on the 2,548-kilometre route from Delhi is provided by Qatar Airways (14 weekly flights) and Jet Airways (10), while on the 2,290-kilometre sector from Mumbai Jet Airways and Qatar Airways (both with daily flights) and Air India Express (four times weekly flights) offer an alternative option to passengers. IndiGo’s other international destinations are Bangkok (from Kolkata), Dubai (from nine Indian airports), Kathmandu (from Delhi), Muscat (from four Indian airports), Sharjah (from Kozhikode and Thiruvananthapuram) and Singapore (from Chennai). This summer IndiGo will be serving 34 destinations non-stop from Delhi and 29 from Mumbai. See how Doha Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
