IndiGo getting ready to please the IAS with its next plane

As we head in to the weekend, a bit of tongue in cheek aviation humour.

India’s largest domestic airline IndiGo has been inducting Airbus A320 aircraft on a regular schedule averaging about one a month. The last aircraft to join the fleet was VT-IAR, delivered on September 22.

The civil servants of the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) will be pleased with the next plane IndiGo is going to take delivery of. Going by sequence it should be registered VT-IAS.

This is probably unintentional, but pleasing these powerful officers is always helpful.

Have a great weekend.
