The ribbon for IndiGo’s new route from Mumbai to Muscat was cut by IndiGo’s president Aditya Ghosh and Gautam Broota, CEO Muscat International Services, while the airline’s CCO Sanjay Kumar (right) looked on. Two cakes were baked for the airline’s entry to Oman – one for the route and one for the partnership with Muscat International Services.
- IndiGo, which recently began operating internationally, continued expanding out of Mumbai (BOM) on 10 October with its 180-seat A320s. The Indian low-cost airline now flies daily to Singapore (SIN), complementing its recently launched Delhi flights, in competition with Singapore Airlines’ twice-daily services and each daily flights on Air India, Kingfisher and Jet Airways, as well as thrice-weekly flights on Qantas. The second route to be launched that day by IndiGo was to Muscat (MCT) in Oman, which notably is IndiGo’s first international destination to be launched with a Mumbai route before Delhi services. Competition to IndiGo’s four weekly flights comes from Oman Air’s twice-daily and Jet Airways’ daily flights.
