This action comes ahead of Air India’s anticipated mega-firm order for 220 Boeing aircraft—190 single-aisle B737 Max, 20 B787 Dreamliners, and 10 B777X – which will include the options for a large number of additional aircraft that Tata Group can covert to firm order at a subsequent date without a longer delivery time. Boeing estimates that during the next 20 years, India’s airlines will need 2200 new aircraft, with narrowbody aircraft making up the majority of those needed. The location of the prospective India logistics centre has not yet been chosen, according to Salil Gupte. It will initially serve as a distribution hub for industrial clients as well as our commercial airline. According to the needs of the client, the company will store spare parts at the centre where they may be quickly obtained. As a result, less time will be spent waiting for spare parts on the ground for aircraft. In the future, the firm will store military aircraft spare parts at this facility.
