IndiGo bags ‘CAPA Global Low Cost Carrier of the Year’ award
IndiGo, one of India’s fastest growing airlines has been conferred upon with the CAPA Global Low Cost Carrier of the Year award at the 2015 CAPA Aviation Awards for Excellence, held in Helsinki, a part of CAPA’s 2015 World Aviation Summit. Aditya Ghosh, president, IndiGo received the award from Peter Harbison, executive chairman CAPA – Centre for Aviation.
Congratulating IndiGo, Harbison said, “In less than 10 years IndiGo has grown to become India’s largest domestic airline with a market share of close to 40 per cent. Despite operating in a very challenging market, IndiGo has consistently reported profits for each of the last seven years, including a record profit in FY2015. Over the same period India’s airlines combined have lost in excess of US$10 billion.”
Ghosh said, “This award holds special significance as it is a recognition of our continued focus towards building a sustainable and growing air transportation network that provides a reliable and consistently high quality offering at lower costs. We are humbled by this recognition and express our gratitude to the esteemed jury. I accept this award on behalf of each and every member of my team at IndiGo, whose passion and commitment are the key reasons for making us who we are and who make my job one of the best jobs in the world. We take pride in putting India on the global aviation map.”
