India’s IndiGo arrives at Changi Airport

Changi Airport Group welcomed IndiGo to its growing network of carriers as India’s largest low-cost carrier commences operations at Changi Airport. IndiGo is the fifth Indian carrier to operate at Changi1.

IndiGo will operate daily passenger services to New Delhi on the Airbus A320 aircraft with a capacity of 180 passengers in a single-class configuration. It will add a Mumbai-Singapore service commencing in the middle of October. IndiGo will operate at Changi Airport Terminal 2.

With the addition of IndiGo, the Singapore-New Delhi route will be served by four carriers2 operating a total of 70 flights a week. The Singapore-Mumbai route will be served by six carriers3 operating a total of 90 flights a week.

Singapore is the most connected point to India in Southeast Asia.

With IndiGo joining Changi’s family of airlines, an additional 2,500 weekly one-way seats will be available between Singapore and India.

Given Singapore’s strategic geographical location, Changi Airport is well-placed to tap on the growth of travel demand in India to Southeast Asia and Australia/ New Zealand.
