IndiGo is the largest customer for the A320 with orders for 430 of the type.

A320neo’s appearance at what is a relatively small show comes after the A320neo failed to make an appearance at the Paris air show in June 2015, the Dubai air show in November 2015, and the Singapore air show in February.
