No-frills car­rier In­diGo cre­ated a record of sorts by op­er­at­ing 900 flights on a sin­gle day, the high­est for any In­dian air­line. The mile­stone un­der­lines In­diGo’s po­si­tion as the largest and fastest grow­ing car­rier with 131 Air­bus air­craft con­nect­ing 44 des­ti­na­tions, the air­line said in a state­ment. “In­diGo adds yet an­other feat to its swelling list of mile­stones by op­er­at­ing 900 flights on April 7, 2017, the high­est ever by an air­line in the his­tory of In­dian Civil Avi­a­tion,” the re­port said. In­diGo Pres­i­dent Aditya Ghosh said, “We at In­diGo are thrilled on hav­ing flown 900 flights in one day for the first time. I un­der­stand it is some kind of a record for civil avi­a­tion in In­dia. Now the team is ex­cited and is striv­ing to reach the 1,000 flight mile­stone. Thank you to the hun­dreds of thou­sands of trav­ellers who choose In­diGo ev­ery day.” In­diGo con­tin­ues to be the mar­ket leader in the In­dian air­line in­dus­try. It had cor­nered 39.5 per cent of the mar­ket in Fe­bru­ary 2017, tak­ing the twom­onth ag­gre­gate to 39.6 per cent. It car­ried 34.19 lakh pas­sen­gers in Fe­bru­ary . As per Aditya Ghosh, the air­line aims to reach the 1,000-flight mile­stone as soon as pos­si­ble.
