“India is one of the fastest developing countries in the aviation market and is also one of the richest talent pools for the next generation of business leaders and we want the best to enter the exciting world of aviation,” Dwarkanath Srinivasan, CEO of Airbus India, said.

“With more passengers flying each year in India, there is an increasing need for expertise in the aviation business,” he said.
