Airbus’ industrial partnerships with Indian companies under the ‘Make in India’ programme will set the tone for its participation in the Aero India 2017.

“The future of Indian aerospace and defence industry rests on the realisation of the ‘Make in India’ vision. I look forward to having conversations around the topic at the Aero India event,” said Pierre de Bausset, President and Managing Director at Airbus India.

“We have partnered with Tata Advanced Systems Ltd (TASL) and Mahindra Defence and are working with a host of other companies to script ‘Make in India’ success stories,” he added.

Airbus’ industrial engagement with India yields over $500 million (about Rs 3,400 crore) in procurement from India annually for around 45 suppliers, generating local employment for more than 6,000 people.

The Aero India 2017 event will be held at Air Force Station Yelahanka, Bengaluru, from February 14-18. The company will exhibit scale models of the C295W military transport aircraft and the AS565 MBe Panther helicopter at the show.
