With the objective of increasing distribution and making the sales process seamless, IndiGo has begun accepting IATA -Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP) in overseas points of sale, making it the first low-cost carrier (LCC) to offer the facility. To begin with, this facility is being offered in points of sale in United Arab Emirates, Qatar and the United Kingdom, and will soon be available in eight more overseas markets. IndiGo will also be the first Indian airline to provide this facility using IATA Financial Gateway (IFG).

William Boulter, Chief Commercial Officer, IndiGo, says, “We are pleased to enable the acceptance of IATA Billing and Settlement Plan to provide an enhanced yet simplified business experience to our travel partners. This facility will also allow us to expand our distribution reach to travel agents across 11 participating markets, starting with UAE, Qatar and the UK in the first phase, and then expanding to other markets. With this facility, we will continue to provide a hassle-free experience to our customers and business partners, while making the process more efficient and seamless.” Travel agents who are keen to use BSP for sale of IndiGo tickets can get in touch with IndiGo account manager or the GSA office in relevant markets.
