Issue: 2 / 2024

Union Minister of Civil Aviation, Jyotiraditya M. Scindia unveiled Airbus’s significant expansion in its ‘Make in India’ initiative during a momentous event. Airbus and Dynamatic Technologies have joined hands to manufacture all doors for the single-aisle A220 family aircraft in India. Talking about the new manufacturing facility Scindia said, “India is steadily becoming a destination for aerospace manufacturing across the world, the largest order for the aircraft doors to Dynamatic technologies which is already working with Airbus is a great moment in Prime Minister’s resolve for make in India.”

With a range of up to 3,600 nautical miles (6,700 km) and seating capacity ranging from 100 to 160 passengers, the A220 is ideally suited for India’s UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik) scheme, aimed at enhancing regional connectivity and promoting economic growth across the nation. The Dynamatic Technologies manufacturing facility of all doors for the single-aisle A220 family aircraft will offer an incredible opportunity for Indian private sector to enter a technologyintensive and highly competitive aviation industry. Additionally, it will elevate domestic manufacturing capabilities leading to reduced import dependence and increased exports.
