Low cost carrier Indigo has won the Airbus’ award for Best Operational Excellence for the second consecutive year. Indigo won the award after outperforming 46 other airlines globally.
The selection criteria for the award is based on data covering two years of operation and taking into consideration the number of aircraft in the fleet, daily utilization rate, technical reliability and the number of delays caused due to flights for operational reasons.
Aditya Ghosh, President and Whole Time Director, IndiGo
“It is a great honour to be the recipient of the coveted “Best Operational Excellence” awards that not only recognize but also reward a few A320 Family operators who have excellent aircraft utilization, in terms of flight cycles and flight hours, combined with excellent Operational Reliability and Delay duration. To be recognized for the second consecutive time after Kuala Lumpur in 2014, it is a proud moment to be receiving the award again for being a large A320 Family operator globally.”
“The fact that these are not jury awards but based on a collection of operational data is a testament to the hard work that thousands of my colleagues put in every day in a tough business and an even tougher environment. I am delighted that IndiGo is being recognized in the global arena and I dedicate this award to every member of the IndiGo family whose commitment to excellence and consistent determination to be better each day has put India on the world stage. It is once more an extremely proud moment for me as an Indian to see an Indian carrier being adjudged as the world’s best!”
