Interglobe Aviation is the parent company of the airline Indigo, a low-cost airline headquartered in Gurugram, Haryana, India. IndiGo was founded in 2006 by Rahul Bhatia of InterGlobe Enterprises and Rakesh Gangwal. By the end of 2006, the airline had six aircraft, and nine more were acquired in 2007. by December 2010, IndiGo had replaced Air India to become the trailing third largest airline in India, trailing behind Kingfisher Airlines and Jet Airways with a passenger market share of 17.3%. The airline became the largest Indian carrier by passenger market share in 2012.
In a price-sensitive market, Indigo has done an excellent job of competing on the basis of price and not the product which has led to an increase to 60.4% in domestic market share amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and is now the largest airline in India by fleet size and passengers carried. the low-cost strategy has also not only cemented their status as one of the few profitable airlines in the country, but it also caused them to be able to increase the workforce in the 2008 global recession.
