IndiGo mulls Amsterdam services with A321neo(XLR)s

IndiGo is mulling services to Amsterdam Schiphol if the incoming A321-200NY(XLR)s can cover the distance in a single flight, according to CEO Pieter Elbers.

Speaking to the Elsevier Weekblad (EW) outlet, Elbers said he wanted to expand existing international code-share arrangements, including with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL, Amsterdam Schiphol). “At a certain point, we have to start thinking about ourselves.” The CEO expects the first of 69 A321neo(XLR)s to start arriving in 2025. With a claimed maximum range of 8,700 kilometres, it puts Western European destinations within range of some Indian cities.

“Rome Fiumicino is perfectly feasible from India. Mumbai International – Amsterdam is just not possible. Depending on the final specifications, the XLR will reach Amsterdam from Delhi,” he said. (Source: ch-aviation)
