Foreign trade/Airbus/sale of 250 A320neo aircraft to the Indian airline IndiGo – Statement by M. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development

Paris, 17 August 2015

I congratulate the Airbus Group on the major new success represented by the signature of the sales contract for 250 A320neo aircraft with the Indian airline IndiGo. It is the leading Indian airline in terms of domestic market share, and the total number of aircraft it has ordered currently stands at 530.

Signed on 15 August, India’s Independence Day, this contract for $26.5 billion is a major step in our relations with India.

The order is the largest contract signed by Airbus in terms of aircraft numbers. It testifies to the excellent health of the French aerospace sector around the world./.
