Speaking about the achievement, Aditya Ghosh, President IndiGo said “We are humbled and honoured to win this award for the seventh consecutive year. What makes it even more special is that it comes at a time when we are completing our ten years of operations in India. This achievement has only been possible because of the unflinching support of our 14,000 members of the IndiGo family, who every single day come to work with one commitment- to provide our flyers with a hassle free experience, ensuring that they reach their destination on time. What’s also heartening to see is the impact that our people at IndiGo have been able to create on the larger community through their volunteering efforts - whether it’s about making a difference to a child’s life through our 6E Scholars programme, working towards a cleaner environment or empowering women from the humblest of socio-economic backgrounds. Each individual at IndiGo has been able make a change and define a larger purpose.”
