Pieter Elbers, CEO, IndiGo, said: “We are excited to introduce these new connecting flights to Australia, in partnership with Qantas, connecting on IndiGo’s  flights from India to Singapore. The two airlines are the market leaders in their respective countries and this agreement will strengthen the bond between the two countries. For IndiGo, placing its code on another airline and connecting over a mid-point (Singapore) is only the 2nd one of its kind. With this we are now enabling the vast IndiGo network to connect with Qantas’ unmatched reach, we create more opportunities for trade and tourism between both nations.”
