Michelin becomes IndiGo tyre partner
IndiGo, the largest airline in India in terms of fleet size and passengers carried, has appointed Michelin tyre partner for its entire fleet. Michelin Aircraft Tyre will supply tyres from its Michelin Air range, primarily the Michelin Air X radial, for IndiGo’s Airbus A320 and ATR 72-600 aircraft – a current total of 189 planes.
Since its inception in August 2006, IndiGo has grown from a single-plane carrier to a fleet that operates flights to 48 domestic and 11 international destinations. The low-cost carrier is currently building up its fleet of Airbus A320neo aircraft, for which Michelin also happens to be an original equipment supplier.
