Thales renews partnership with IndiGo

New Delhi, Nov 4 (IANS) Domestic low-cost airline IndiGo on Wednesday said it has extended its agreement with Thales, an electronics system company, for its growing fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft.

“The contract will cover avionics maintenance for a fleet of up to 250 aircraft, including the A320neo which will start being delivered to IndiGo in late 2015,” the company said in a statement.

“As an airline committed to affordable travel with on-time performance, having a comprehensive maintenance and support programme with a trusted vendor like Thales is of paramount importance,” said IndiGo president Aditya Ghosh.

“We have had great support from Thales in these past nine years and we look forward to a continued partnership as our business develops,” he added.

Thales has been a partner to IndiGo since 2006 when the airline took delivery of its first Airbus A320-200 aircraft.

Under the agreement, Thales provides spares availability and replenishment to IndiGo with stocks located onsite at their main hub in New Delhi, the airline’s main base.

Thales also offers IndiGo direct access to a pool of spare parts located in Thales’ Asia-Pacific repair hub in Singapore.

“Through this agreement, Thales is able to provide a flexible solution to IndiGo that helps them optimise the maintenance of their fleet while keeping inventory under control,” said Daniel Malka, Thales vice president, Avionics Services Worldwide.
