IndiGo’s fleet to be equipped with Michelin tyres

Michelin will supply its tyres for IndiGo’s Airbus and ATR Fleets for a long term.

However, the deal value has not been disclosed.

The French tyre maker’s tyre will help to IndiGo to create better value for its passengers, by equipping its fleet with environment friendly Michelin Air fuel efficient tyres, said Michelin.

IndiGo has been buying A320 NEO family aircraft, for which Michelin also happens to be an OE tyre supplier.

IndiGo today operates operates flights to 48 domestic and 11 international destinations, having a fleet of 189 aircraft.

Michelin AIR X radial tyre, according to the company, provides an overall reduction in the operational costs through increased number of aircraft landings, better fuel efficiency & exceptional resistance to foreign object damage.

Thanks to its innovative radial casing design, the tyres are also environment friendly, as their construction is designed to utilize fewer components and use less fuel leading to less CO2 emissions.

Frank Moreau, President of Michelin Aircraft Tyre, commented: “We have developed truly high-technology tires that are perfectly adapted to the needs of the airlines. This means that we not only combined a high level of safety in extreme conditions and guarantee a large number of landings, but also allow fuel efficiency and environment friendliness”.
