Indian budget airline to expand
Air Deccan launch in August 2003
Air Deccan is modelled on cut-price European services
India's first low-cost carrier Air Deccan is set to buy two Airbus A320 aircraft and has an option for two more, the company has said.

Neither Air Deccan nor Airbus would put a price on the deal, but the A320 carries a catalogue price of $65m.

From July, the low-cost carrier will also lease five A320 aircraft from Singapore Aircraft Leasing Enterprise.

The expansion is being seen as a sign that the "no frills" service is taking off in India.
