Airbus shares a long-standing relationship of collaboration and symbiotic growth with India. For more than 50 years, technology and know-how from the company have catalysed the growth of India’s civil aviation sector and supported the modernisation of its armed forces.

“Make in India"

"Make in India" is at the heart of Airbus strategy in India with the company constantly increasing the country's contribution to its global product portfolio. Airbus' local footprint in sourcing, engineering, innovation, maintenance and training services is a testament to our commitment to developing the local ecosystem.

India’s strength lies in its talent, with the presence of perhaps the largest engineers and Information Technology partner ecosystems in the world. We are leveraging these factors to contribute to our global programmes. For us, India is a base, a strategic resource hub for emerging technologies, world-class talent and research and development that powers the aerospace sector.

Commercial Aircraft

With the A320 Family being a prominent choice of the Indian market and making Delhi the world’s busiest A320 airport, Airbus has forged ahead from sending A300 twin-aisle aircraft to India about 50 years ago.  Airbus has witnessed the development of the Indian aerospace sector and is working with Indian suppliers and innovators and sharing expertise in training and services. The recent landmark deal with Air India for the acquisition of 40 next generation A350 aircraft will write a new chapter for the country’s air-connectivity.



Airbus has been leading the domestic and para-public helicopter market and was the first foreign Original Equipment Manufacturer to set up a customer centre for the Indian market. Moving to the future we are developing a new market segments in India such as Helicopters Emergency Medical Services (HEMS), Power Transmission lines stringing, security etc.
