Tom Enders, CEO, Airbus Group said, “We have implemented a new organisational structure there with Pierre in charge. There will be more internal coordination, pooling of resources and basically a far more efficient engagement with our local stakeholders. Formation of a single company will also greatly support our ‘Make in India’ plans and allow us to take a leap in our relationship with the country.”

The group is tying up with Indian partners to target several ongoing defence acquisition programmes. It has submitted a joint bid with Tata to offer the C295 aircraft as a replacement for the Indian Air Force’s ageing Avro aircraft.
