By Staff Correspondent

IndiGo has been selected by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to organize the 81st IATA Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit in Delhi, India, from 8 to 10 June 2025.

“We anticipate convening the aviation sector in Delhi, the primary entry point of India, for the 81st IATA AGM in 2025.” More than forty years have passed since the industry convened for an IATA AGM in Delhi. India is on track to become the world’s third-largest aviation market within this decade due to its record aircraft purchases, significant growth, and top-notch infrastructural upgrades.  “Given the promising future, the IATA AGM is an opportune moment for it to come back to India and personally observe these thrilling advancements,” stated Willie Walsh, the Director General of IATA.

IndiGo is honoured to serve as the official airline for the 81st IATA AGM and eagerly anticipates welcoming the international aviation community to Delhi in 2025. India is poised to become the world’s third-largest economy in the next years and is at the forefront of the fourth industrial revolution, utilizing artificial intelligence. It is a dynamic and progressive nation. Pieter Elbers, CEO of IndiGo, stated that India’s ascent in the worldwide aviation industry in recent years has been truly extraordinary.

IndiGo has been operating domestic flights in India since 2006 and has also been gradually expanding its foreign operations. Elbers expressed anticipation for engaging in significant discussions that will shape the global aviation industry with a focus on crucial subjects such as safety, diversity, equity and inclusion, and sustainability. The goal is to effectively meet the increasing global demand for air travel while utilizing aviation as a positive force and taking advantage of India’s distinct diversity.

The choice to hold the 81st IATA AGM in India was determined during the 80th IATA AGM in Dubai. The IATA AGM will be held in Delhi for the third time, after its previous visits to India in 1958 and 1983.
