Indian airline companies are looking to add about 150 planes in the current financial year, up from 80 planes planned earlier.
The shortage of planes, following the suspension of Jet Airways' services, has led to a surge in fares with most flights getting cancelled.
Of the total number of airline companies operating in India, Interglobe Aviation’s IndiGo will add the most—about 50—making it the largest fleet in the Indian aviation market.
