IndiGo could be a potential future SkyTeam alliance member: Air France

Air France chairman and CEO Alexandre de Juniac indicated IndiGo could be a potential SkyTeam alliance future member. He stated, as quoted by The Hindu: "We are looking for a partner. We cannot name the partner. It is difficult to give a timeline for getting a partner on board, considering the current financial situation of the Indian aviation industry. Indigo is a low-cost carrier, but it could be partner of SkyTeam. If we consider Indigo network would feed big Indian cities, then we would consider that. However, let me clarify that no formal discussion is taking place at this moment." He continued, "We have three partners in China. It would be a pity if we do not get a partner from India".
