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’ relationship with India started some half a century ago with the delivery of the first Airbus A300 twin-aisle aircraft to the erstwhile Indian Airlines, now Air India. It has a proud and prominent presence in the Indian skies, accounting for a vast majority of the in-service fleet and with about 500 aircraft still to be delivered. 

The A320 Family is the airliner of choice in the discerning Indian market, with Delhi being the world’s busiest A320 airport.

Airbus recently announced a landmark deal with Air India that includes the acquisition of 40 next generation A350 aircraft. These aircraft have the range and payload capability to fly non-stop from India to deep into the United States with unparalleled comfort for its passengers, superior efficiency and the lowest economics for the airline. The A350 is set to become the unmatched, new flagship for Indian aviation and will bring India closer to the world.
