According to IndiGo, the maximum allowed number of passengers having severe reduced mobility per flight is limited to four.
This is in keeping with international norms which require that the number of individuals with reduced mobility should not be more than the personnel trained to assist with evacuation.
IndiGo commenced operations in early 2006. It has a dedicated fleet of 78 Airbus A320 aircraft and covers a total of 36 domestic and international destinations.
