IndiGo has no plans to bid for Air India based on the government's current terms of the transaction which was recently issued, as Air India, Air India Express and Air India-SATS are not available separately.

“From day one, IndiGo has expressed its interest primarily in the acquisition of AI’s international operations and AI Express. However, that option is not available under the government’s current divestiture plans for AI. Also, as we have communicated before, we do not believe that we have the capability to take on the task of acquiring and successfully turning around all of AI’s airline operations," said IndiGo president and Whole Time Director, Aditya Ghosh.

Vistara is the only other airline to have officially expressed interest in Air India.
