IndiGo was thinking about making a strategic change to increase its market share outside of the country by adding a premium class on its foreign routes. The airline intends to modify its Airbus A321 aircraft to incorporate a dual-class arrangement by the end of 2024. With 35 aircraft anticipated to have a premium cabin by the end of the following year.

According to a source cited in the story, the premium cabin will include four rows of seats and offer additional legroom as well as benefits like priority boarding, hot meals, and a loyalty programme. The move by IndiGo is perceived as an attempt to draw in more corporate travellers and fortify its position in the global market. At the moment, IndiGo follows a simple business strategy. They are prioritising affordability and a large market share in the home Indian market.

Under CEO Pieter Elbers, the airline is currently attempting to take advantage of its strong position in the home market to establish itself as a global leader in aviation. The premium cabin project seeks to serve high-yielding clients. And providing them with a unique experience that includes improved comfort and services.
