IndiGo launches maiden flights to China effective September 2019; announces Chengdu as its 19th International destination

India’s largest carrier, IndiGo adds another destination in its international portfolio. With entry into one of the world’s leading economies, IndiGo will extend connectivity into China to one of its busiest and fastest growing cities – Chengdu.

This will be the first non-stop service between Chengdu to India.

Mr. William Boulter, Chief Commercial Officer, IndiGo said“This is truly a milestone moment for all of us at IndiGo. “India is witnessing a much higher growth rate with respect to aviation and currently the India-China route is underserved by Indian carriers. With our plan to operate non-stop daily flights to this Chengdu we are providing the much needed connectivity between the two destinations. China is a market with immense potential and holds prominent trade, cultural and tourism values. We hope to further strengthen this relation by announcing our entry into China.”
