GoAir (G8, Mumbai Int'l) has reportedly invited Airbus and Boeing to submit bids for a total of 20 wide- and 200 narrow-body aircraft, the Business Standard has written.

Managing Director Jeh Wadia said that the LCC was planning to add one aircraft every month going forward.

According to the ch-aviation fleets advanced module, GoAir currently operates sixteen A320-200s and thirty-seven A320-200neo. The airline has a further 107 A320neo on firm order from Airbus. The LCC is in the process of replacing all its A320ceo with A320neo. It has been mulling over the launch of widebody operations for some time although it has yet to announce any official plans in this market segment.

GoAir's rival LCC, IndiGo Airlines (6E, Delhi Int'l), is also mulling entering the widebody segment but is similarly wary about this step and has not confirmed it yet.
