The talks comes as the Gurgaon-based carrier is looking to expand its international footprint, said the report.
According to the report, the carrier is planning to use A321s on new routes to Istanbul and start one-stop services to Europe via Central Asia. The tie up, the report says, will help the carrier to increase seat occupancy and generate revenue from international routes.
The development is significant as IndiGo’s international operations are on the rise. The carrier currently serves 15 overseas destinations with 115 daily flights and has launched services to new destinations including Male, Phuket, and Hong Kong besides a service between Amritsar-Dubai and Vijayawada-Singapore, the report said.
