Our aircraft

Each aircraft is disinfected and sanitized before every flight using Environment Protection Agency (EPA) approved hospital grade disinfectants. Passenger seats, seat belt buckles, armrests, overhead nozzles, tray tables, galleys and lavatories are thoroughly disinfected given the frequency of contact.
The cabin air flows vertically from ceiling to floor and gets absorbed for filtration. This minimizes the spread of possible viruses in the cabin.
Indigo Airbus aircraft are equipped with HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters which filter out recirculated air on-board to remove up to 99.999% of harmful airborne particles such as viruses and bacteria.


After the plane has landed, remain seated until cabin crew calls you to leave the plane in smaller groups.
Disembark the aircraft in an organized manner, following all social distancing norms.
