Budget passenger carrier GoAir said in July that it has signed an MoU with Airbus for 72 A320neo aircrafts as part of its expansion plans. The budget airline said the MoU was signed at the Farnborough International Airshow and with the induction, it will expand its network, offer fliers better connectivity and continue its growth as one of India’s preferred low-cost airline.

Earlier in 2011, the airline had announced a similar agreement for 72 A320neo aircrafts, bringing the total booked order to 144 aircraft. The first two aircraft from this order were delivered in June 2016. “The new A320neo will provide us the competitive edge to achieve our growth targets and help us in strengthening our presence in the wider region,” the airline’s Chief Executive Wolfgang Prock-Schauer said in a statement. “The new aircraft will help us in unlocking new domestic routes while providing a springboard for continued international network expansion in the years to come.”
