IndiGo Announces Flights to 9 European Countries via Istanbul


IndiGo, India’s leading airline, has announced the launch of new one-stop flights to 9 European countries through its codeshare partnership with Turkish Airlines.

The new flights will operate via Istanbul, providing travellers with enhanced international connectivity and convenient travel options.

With the recent increase in demand for outbound travel to Europe, IndiGo’s new flights will provide 141 average weekly flights to destinations such as Malta, Hungary, Belgium, Israel, Ireland, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Greece, and Denmark.

The airline now operates 335 average weekly codeshare flights to 15 countries in Europe, in line with its vision to enhance international connectivity.


Increased Flight Frequency

IndiGo will operate two daily flights to Malta, Budapest, Dublin, Prague, Amsterdam, Athens, and Copenhagen and three daily flights to Brussels and Tel Aviv. These new flights have been added in view of the resurgence of air travel and the increasing demand for travel to Europe.

Boeing 777 Aircraft

It is worth noting here that starting from February 1, 2023, IndiGo has also started operating a Boeing 777 aircraft on the Delhi-Istanbul route. The airline has inducted its first wide-body aircraft to cater to the increasing demand for travel to and from India.

This aircraft will be operated by IndiGo on a ‘damp lease’ arrangement.

The Boeing 777 aircraft has a seating capacity of 400 passengers in a dual-class configuration, offering comfortable travel options to those travelling between Delhi and Istanbul.


Statement from IndiGo’s Head of Global Sales

Vinay Malhotra, Head of Global Sales at IndiGo, said, “We have witnessed a strong demand for international travel and especially to Europe last year. These connecting flights will not only add capacity but also provide convenient travel options for people looking to travel between India and Europe. We are confident that with the resurgence of international travel, these exciting options will offer people multiple choices for their travel this summer.”

IndiGo’s commitment to providing affordable fares, on-time performance, and hassle-free connectivity for its customers remains a top priority.

The airline will continue to explore opportunities to enhance its offerings and provide travellers with the best possible travel experience.
