Journey Through Time: The Stories of VT-IDV and IndiGo

In the vast expanse of aviation, every aircraft carries a silent chronicle of its adventures. The VT-IDV, a seasoned Airbus A320-214, recently released as an Aviationtag, is no exception. Its tale is a fascinating narrative that transcends borders and carriers, leaving an indelible mark on the aviation tapestry. Let's embark on a journey through time, exploring the intertwined stories of VT-IDV and its carrier, IndiGo.

IndiGo's Ascent to the Skies

The IndiGo saga began in 2006 when Rahul Bhatia of InterGlobe Enterprises and Rakesh Gangwal founded the airline. Taking delivery of its first aircraft in July 2006, IndiGo swiftly ascended to become the largest Indian carrier by passenger market share in 2012. The airline's unique business model, focused on reducing costs and ensuring punctuality, proved to be the cornerstone of its success.

Over the years, IndiGo achieved significant milestones, including becoming the largest airline in India by market share in 2012 and placing historic orders for Airbus A320neo family aircraft in 2015 and 2019. In December 2019, IndiGo made history by operating 1,500 daily flights, and by the end of 2019, it boasted a fleet size exceeding 250 aircraft.

In January 2023, IndiGo reached another milestone, becoming the first Indian airline with a fleet size surpassing 300 aircraft. The airline continued to script history, introducing its first wide-body aircraft, a Boeing 777-300ER, in February 2023. By June 2023, IndiGo placed an order for a staggering 500 Airbus A320neo family aircraft, solidifying its position in commercial aviation history.

VT-IDV's Chapter in the IndiGo Saga

Enter the VT-IDV, an Airbus A320-214 with CFM56-5B4/P engines. Delivered in 2002 to the
Spanish charter carrier Iberworld, this aircraft danced through the skies until 2009. From India to Germany, and a brief interlude in Russia with Rossiya, it finally found a home with IndiGo from 2016 to 2022.

VT-IDV, the seventh registration in its storied life, added an Indian chapter to its alphanumeric tale. Registrations EC-IEQ, VT-WAY, EC-KDD, VQ-BDQ, and more marked distinct eras, each a testament to the aircraft's resilience and adaptability.

      The A320 it's the airplane model that I have flown most times. It all started with a trip to Sao Paulo back in 2007 with Taca Airlines, and since that moment I was so amazed by this aircraft. As a personal opinion I prefer Airbus over Boeing, because I feel the A320 gives me relaxing vibes, I feel extra space for each passenger and also after the flight I feel less tired, than compared to other models (Boeing). I tried the A320 model in many other destinations and airlines like LATAM, Avianca, JetSmart, Tame and Lacsa, and in all of this experiences I was completely happy with the result. After all of this I recognize that the A320 it's a crucial piece in the aviation history, and many of the current technology progress has been achieved with the work and developing of this model. We will have A320 for many years, but we have to remember how big this program is and how it started not so many years ago. Long live to the A320 family!

      It would be a nice souvenir from my trip to India in 2019 when I flew from BOM to CCU on one of these IndiGo A320s.
      A trip full of indelible memories in my mind and a lot of smell of spices and brightened colours!
