IndiGo to launch Hanoi flights

IndiGo says it has received clearance from the Vietnam air regulator to launch flights to Hanoi.

It will soon 'be putting the flight out for sale,' said IndiGo chief commercial officer, William Boulter, and is also eyeing a new service to Ho Chi Minh City.

It will announce details of the flight launch soon, it said.

Southeast Asia is a main focus for expansion, IndiGo recently said, and comes days after a new route to Yangon, Myanmar was unveiled.

Other routes linking India with the ASEAN bloc include Bangkok, Phuket and Singapore.

"Of our total expansion this year, roughly 50% will be on international operations," Boulter said.

The airline also announced another route to China with Delhi-Chengdu flights beginning on September 15.

It currently flies to 18 international destinations .

  • IndiGo a conscientious airlines

    I only flew with IndiGo for the first time in last June, i was impressed by the airlines in several aspects. They sent text to me a day before departure reminding me the check-in counter is closed 45 minutes before departure time. Their determination keeping on time departure is also announced in other occasion. They did not treat on time departure as a slogan. They demonstrated their CSR on board by urging passengers help keeping destination free from plastic pollution; they, for the second time, collecting bottles or plastics before landing. On disembarkation, as no air-bridge available, the gang-plank used is in the shape of wedge without stairs. The slope needs a little longer time to walk than normal ladder type gang-plank, but it is good for wheelchair access and it is much safer than stepping down on stairs to most of the passengers. And it costs more than strait flight stairs. I endorse IndiGo and will be pleased to fly with them next time.
