There was much buzz created by IndiGo and Turkish Airlines when they unveiled that the airline will receive a Boeing 777 aircraft, which is owned by Turkish Airlines but will be damp-leased to IndiGo and painted in their colours.

IndiGo receives its first 777 aircraft in its own livery.

While IndiGo is already working with Turkish Airlines and operating a Delhi – Istanbul and Mumbai – Istanbul and v.v. flights using Turkish Airlines equipment, on Sunday, May 28, IndiGo received the aircraft, which has been painted in their own white and blue livery.

The Boeing 777 aircraft has a seating capacity of 531 passengers – 524 in economy and 7 in Business Class (IndiGo does not sell Business Class). IndiGo passengers flying aboard this aircraft will also be able to pre-book hot meals. Since IndiGo did not put out a seat map, here is the seat map from the erstwhile operator of this very crowded 777.

IndiGo shared some pictures of the aircraft on the inside. These seem to be not professional shots but someone using their phone camera.

IndiGo does promise affordable fares to Europe via their partnership with Turkish Airlines for customers who book these flights.


IndiGo has received the first 777 in a dense configuration from Turkish Airlines. This aircraft will operate flights between Delhi and Istanbul effective June 1, 2023, and is painted in the IndiGo livery. The plane was earlier used for Azul Air.
