InterGlobe Aviation-run IndiGo on August 4 started deploying three ramps to help passengers exit planes faster.

Two ramps are being deployed on the front of the plane and another on the back in a bid to clear planes 5-7 minutes faster. This is also expected to help improve efficiency as well as on-time performance of the airline.

This new disembarkation procedure is being implemented on IndiGo’s A320 and A321 fleet for flights arriving at remote stands at Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru airports to begin with, and will be progressively deployed across the network in the next 100 days.

The airline said that trials over the past 45 days have shown the turnaround time to disembark an Airbus A320 plane has fallen from average 13-14 to 7-8 minutes now.

The new procedure has been adopted as part of IndiGo's 16th anniversary. The airline also launched discounts as part of the celebrations.
