Qatar Airways Eyes Up Indigo

Qatar Airways is looking to invest in Indian carrier Indigo, revealed the firm’s CEO, Akbar Al Baker, at the IATA AGM in Qatar yesterday (June 2). When asked by reporters whether Qatar Airlines was interested in buying a stake in the low-cost carrier, Al Baker said: “We are keen to invest in Indigo, if it is available. [Indigo] is the most successful Indian carrier, the most cost-efficiently run Indian carrier and the most progressive one.” Al Baker’s comments come 14 months after fellow Gulf airline Etihad bought 24 per cent of Indian full service carrier Jet Airways.
