While addressing a media gathering at Toulouse, Captain Mittra, read out a message from Aditya Ghosh, President and Director of IndiGo saying, “We are now one step closer to the launch of our Turboprop operations by the end of this year. The teams have put in a lot of hard work in order to launch our regional operations within a relatively short period of time. Actually just nine months. We are excited at the opportunity of once again being able to redefine air travel in India by bringing the reliability and efficiency of IndiGo’s operations to towns and regions in our country which so far have been devoid of reliable air service or have been subject to exorbitant airfares. My sincere thanks to the team at ATR. We are proud of our association.” Read More…
