Singapore Airlines, which owns 25.1% of Air India, will also participate in the consortium through its engineering arm, SIA Engineering Company Limited.
According to Campbell Wilson, the exclusion of AIESL from Air India has created a difficult road ahead for maintaining and servicing the airline’s fleet.
“The loss of Air India’s engineering credentials is one of the unfavorable surprises of privatization. AIESL will continue to offer services through the end of 2019. But given our growth, what happens next deserves careful thought,” Wilson had said.
