IndiGo is a low-cost airline from India. Simultaneously, it’s counted amongst the biggest flight providers in this country and one of the most productive in Asia (at least amongst the budget options). The usual destinations primarily include India, as well as several surrounding Asian countries.
What is IndiGo?
IndiGo is an Indian low-cost airline. As such, they’ve been able to acquire a sizeable fleet since their inception in 2005.
Meaning and History
The company was created in 2005 by a cadre of big-shot Indian businessmen. A few years in, they’ve acquired a sizeable fleet and became one of India’s most successful airlines. The name is a play of words: they do use indigo as their main color, but it also can be read as ‘India Go’.
Who owns IndiGo?
IndiGo is owned by several Indian and American businessmen. Particularly, there’s an entity called InterGlobe Enterprises, but it doesn’t own much except the airline itself.
2006 – today
The official logo is simply its name written in the indigo color (a dark blue hue). It’s a rather casual, fluid style. Many nuances you’d usually see on these letters are gone, which makes it very minimalistic. The first ‘I’ and the ‘G’ are capitalized, just like on the official name styling.
Emblem and Symbol
Where does IndiGo fly?
They primarily offer services across India. There are, however, many more destinations throughout Asia.
In addition to the official logo, they also have a secondary emblem fairly often for marketing and branding – specifically when the name from the logo is instead put onto the purple background and colored white. The emblem is an image of a plane, drawn in white dots next to the logo proper.
