IndiGo Airlines (6E, Delhi International) is looking at the possibility of placing an order with Airbus (AIB, Toulouse Blagnac) for up to thirty A350s, according to a Bloomberg News report.

The Indian LCC does not currently operate any widebodies, only wet-leasing two B777-300ERs from Turkish Airlines (TK, Istanbul Airport).

ch-aviation has asked IndiGo Airlines for comment. It declined to comment.

The ch-aviation fleets module shows that IndiGo Airlines’ fleet comprises 354 in-house aircraft - twenty A320-200s, 192 A320-200Ns, three A321-200(P2F)s, ninety-four A321-200NX, and forty-five ATR72-600s. It also wet-leases eleven A320ceo, six from SmartLynx Airlines (6Y, Riga) and five from SmartLynx Airlines Estonia (MYX, Tallinn Lennart Meri).

The carrier has a massive pending order with Airbus, totalling 940 future narrowbody airframes to be delivered. However, it has toyed with the idea of opening long-haul services, including destinations such as Amsterdam Schiphol and the United Kingdom. While the airline expects to add sixty-nine A321-200NY(XLR)s, some routes could not be directly served even with these jets, thus the need for widebodies.

IndiGo’s wet-leased B777-300ERs currently fly between Istanbul Airport and both Delhi International and Mumbai International, the ch-aviation schedules module shows.
