IndiGo changing Airbus order for larger craft

One of India's leading airlines IndiGo and currently the country's India’s largest domestic operator has made a major switch in a recent Airbus order according to reports from news agency Reuters.

The Indian aviation industry is undergoing a period of severe turbulence at the moment with both Air India and Jet Airways experiencing heavy financial difficulties. Therefore it might seem rather surprising that IndiGo, has apparently, switched an order for 125 of the new engine offering of the Airbus A320 jet to the larger A321neo aircraft that also have a greater range. 

The airline plans to increase capacity on its route network by around 30% before the end of this financial year and it may expand its route network to take advantage of the consolidation from rivals Jet and Air India.
