Hyderabad : At the biennial Wings India airshow that will be kicking off in Hyderabad from March 24-27, 2022, Aerospace giant, Airbus will be showcasing its Airbus A350 – the undisputed leader in sustainable long-range air travel. The Wings India airshow will be held at Begumpet Airport in Hyderabad.
Airbus will put the A350 on a static display showcasing the future of long-haul travel, along with its portfolio of world-class products and services that are fostering the growth of commercial aviation in India. Hyderabad will also be the last stop of the A350’s demonstration tour of India beginning on March 21, 2022. In June 2021, an A350 test aircraft had delivered a consignment comprising oxygen concentrators and ventilators to India.
“Air travel in India is at an inflection point with a growing middle class, an increasing propensity to travel and a geographical advantage all conducive to opening up the long-haul potential. It is the time for the renaissance of international travel solutions in and out of India,” said Rémi Maillard, President and MD of Airbus India & South Asia.
Rémi Maillard pointed out that with low fuel burn, A350 can enable Indian airlines to regain market share in the lucrative long-haul segment and grow their operations.
“The A350 offers the greatest range capability combined with the lowest fuel burn, and is the strategic enabler for Indian airlines to regain market share in the lucrative long-haul segment and to profitably grow their operations. We believe the A350 will shape the future of long-range travel. So we are delighted to be showcasing the A350 aircraft at Wings India 2022.”
A350 is a wide-bodied aircraft and A220 is a narrow-bodied aircraft. Wide-bodied aircraft can travel longer distances and two Indian carriers – Vistara and Air India – have wide-bodied planes in their fleets.
Present at Stand 12 in Hall A, Airbus will also display a scale model of its single aisle A220 aircraft, purpose-built for the 100-160 seat market that can prove to be a game changer for regional connectivity in India. Alongside it will be a cutaway model of the A350-900. Airbus Helicopters will showcase scale models of the ACH130 from its corporate portfolio and the multi-role H160. Visitors to the stand can also learn about an array of material, airframe and training services offered by Airbus and gain knowledge about its open digital platform for aviation – Skywise.
