Pieter Elbers, CEO of IndiGo, expressed that India’s and IndiGo’s growth have been closely linked over the past 18 years. As India prepares to become the world’s third-largest economy, Elbers stated that it is IndiGo’s privilege to offer more travel options for business travelers in the New India. The new business class service is expected to be operational before the end of the year, providing enhanced travel experiences for the airline’s customers.
