DELHI- Tata Group Owned FSC, Air India (AI) has inaugurated a massive warehouse facility in Delhi, designed for the storage of more than 1,000,000 engineering spare parts crucial for the maintenance, inspections, and repairs of its aircraft and ground support equipment.
This strategic move aims further to boost the operational efficiency of Air India’s fleet and contribute to the growth of India’s expanding aviation ecosystem.
Air India Engineering Warehouse
Situated in close proximity to Terminal 3 within the Air Cargo Logistics division of Delhi Airport’s Cargo complex, this centralized warehouse spans approximately 54,000 square feet.
Its establishment is set to significantly enhance the swift turnaround of Air India’s flights departing from Delhi.
Campbell Wilson, CEO and Managing Director of Air India, expressed, “The establishment of this warehouse marks a significant achievement for Air India, underscoring our commitment to quality, professionalism, and investment. This world-class facility promises to enhance the efficiency of Air India’s fleet and operations and contributes to the growth of India’s aviation ecosystem. The warehouse will grant us closer access to and improved control over our aircraft spare parts, enabling us to promptly address any engineering needs, ultimately leading to improved flight punctuality.”
Distinguished as the first-of-its-kind facility among Indian airlines, this integrated warehouse will serve as the cornerstone of Air India’s engineering department, offering a comprehensive solution for storing various aircraft spare parts, tools, and ground support equipment.
It encompasses a wide range of items, from basic hardware to advanced and intricate components such as avionics, hydraulics, structural elements, pneumatics, and mechanical parts.
The warehouse will effectively meet the engineering resource demands for maintenance and service across Air India, Air India Express (IX), and AIX Connect (I5) fleets, consolidating resources from 16 smaller, dispersed locations in Delhi and Mumbai into a state-of-the-art centralized facility.
Serving as both a hub and feeder network for operations throughout India, this initiative will streamline airline functions and enhance inventory control.
Positioned in close proximity to Air India’s aircraft hangars at Terminal 3 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport, the warehouse will facilitate the swift movement of spare parts to address technical issues.
This integrated facility represents a significant upgrade to India’s engineering warehouse infrastructure, aligning with Air India’s ongoing transformation into a world-class airline.
