The aviation ministry approves IndiGo’s wet leasing of planes for operations in the US and Canada.

According to a senior official, the civil aviation ministry has given the nation’s largest airline, IndiGo, permission to wet lease up to two aircraft in order to operate flights to the United States.

In February, IndiGo launched the wide-body Boeing 777 service between Delhi and Istanbul for the first time.

Turkish Airlines’ wet-lease agreement for the aircraft has been signed.
