Ltd., Rémi Maillard, President and Managing Director of Airbus India and South Asia, and Sunny Guglani, Head of Helicopters for Airbus India and South Asia.
“Establishing and sustaining a comprehensive rotary-wing aviation ecosystem in India is pivotal for Airbus Helicopters. Through our collaboration with Indamer, we intend to address the needs of our expanding fleet in India, tapping into future potential and leveraging technical expertise to advance India’s helicopter MRO aspirations,” stated Romain Trapp, Executive Vice-President of Customer Support and services for Airbus Helicopters.
“More than a decade ago, Indamer strategically established its rotary-wing MRO division, concentrating on meeting the escalating demands of Indian customers for helicopters. The acknowledgment from Airbus directly stems from the company’s steadfast commitment to this strategic focus. With the right support, we maintain our belief that the maintenance needs of Indian customers can be effectively met domestically. We align with Airbus in sharing this collective vision and express our gratitude for their recognition,” stated Prajay Patel, Director of Indamer Aviation.
