IndiGo’s first #a320neo has made an appearance on the opening day of the #indiaaviation airshow in Hyderabad. The aircraft was shown in front of Indian Government officials, IndiGo and #airbus executives as well as airshow crowds.

The aircraft was delivered on March 11th after a direct flight from Toulouse to Delhi International airport lasting over eight hours (8hrs & 12 mins).

IndiGo, India’s largest airline by passenger numbers is Airbus’ biggest #a320neo customer having ordered a total of 430 aircraft placed in 2011 and 2015.

The #a320neo “new engine option” incorporates many innovations, including latest generation engines and large Sharklet wing-tip devices, which together deliver 15 percent in fuel savings from day one and 20 per cent by 2020. This is equivalent to a reduction of 5,000 tonnes of CO2 per aircraft per year. So far #airbus has won orders for over 4,500 #a320neo aircraft.
