IndiGo is looking to further expand its network into Asia and the Middle East with the entry of its new Airbus A321neos.

During the carrier's latest investors call following the Q1 results, interim chief executive Rahul Bhatia said that the carrier expects to receive the first A321neos at the end of the year, which will give it "the capability to reach cities in China, Middle East and Southeast Asia".

"We have also secured traffic rights to fly to cities like Abu Dhabi, Kuala Lumpur, Kuwait, Male, Jeddah and Hong Kong. We are evaluating all such opportunities to expand our network and provide many more choices to our customers," he adds.

FlightGlobal schedules shows that the carrier's Southeast Asian routes are Kolkata to Bangkok, and Chennai and Bengaluru to Singapore. It also operates flights to Doha, Dubai, Sharjah and Muscat.

The carrier has 25 A321neos and 364 A320neos on order, Flight Fleets Analyzer shows.
