Indo went on shopping spree to Toulouse! Today the CEO was casually walking through the beautiful city of Toulouse and decided it would be nice if he went home with some souvenirs of his vacation. He decided to drop in to the Airbus headquarters and signed firm orders for 51 planes from the A320 family in order to even off the fleet of Indo to 220 A320NEOs (10 leased out) and 35 A319s (15 leased out). The order, worth around 3 billion dollars at list prices includes:
- 40 A320NEO Light, which will be used for expansion
- 4 A320NEO Heavy, which will be used for expansion into longer range markets
- 7 A319 SHARP, used as replacement for older A319Es and for expansion into rural areas
In addition to this order the CEO earlier signed a Letter of intent for 500 A321NEO which will be firmed in batches of 50 with the first batch already under delivery, with 15 aircraft remaining to be delivered. In order to not block the order book for two tears the whole order for 500 wont be firmed at ones. This order is for the Average age of the Indo fleet to always be kept under 2 years (currently 1.7 years).
In addition to these new orders the Indo fleet will be rounded off to contain as few aircraft models as possible to bring cost savings in maintenance commonality which in turn will make us more profit. This means that the 10 A319E Medium and 6 A320NEO Medium will leave us in order to homogenise the fleet. All remaining A319E have been leased out to American to continue Global group service across the pacific.
