Such a massive single order for Airbus from Indigo, but are there any benefits for Indian Aerospace Industry from such a significant order? The Chinese would have probably demanded a 2nd A320 assembly plant https://www.airbus.com/newsroom/press-r ... craft.html
Excerpts from the article...
Toulouse – India’s IndiGo has placed a firm order for 300 A320neo Family aircraft. This marks one of Airbus’ largest aircraft orders ever with a single airline operator.
This latest IndiGo order comprises a mix of A320neo, A321neo and A321XLR aircraft. This will take IndiGo’s total number of A320neo Family aircraft orders to 730.
At least, GoI should have demanded a MRO place in desh (perhaps massive support for Air Works from Airbus) where all the Indigo planes could be serviced. I know Air Works are gradually ramping up their MRO capabilities, but I do hope, such a place like above already exists (been a little out of touch on MRO scene in India off lately).
