Delhi International Airport (P) Ltd has inked a land licence agreement with Airbus for setting up India’s first full flight simulator at the Aerocity Terminal District of Indira Gandhi International Airport.
The agreement will pave way for Airbus to set up full flight simulator on the 1.11 acre of land to address the growing demand of trained pilots and aircraft maintenance engineers.
In addition, Airbus will establish its India headquarters within the same development. The land licence agreement between DIAL (a GMR-led consortium) and Airbus India is valid for up to March 31, 2036.
The flight training centre is being developed to meet the growing requirements of its customers at Delhi, a base for Air India, Indigo and Vistara.
The Terminal District of Delhi Aerocity will see development of over two million square feet, according to DIAL.
