Air India on Friday announced that it has commissioned a mega warehouse facility in Delhi to facilitate storage of over 1,000,000 engineering spares that are integral to maintenance, checks and repairs of its aircraft and ground support equipment.

The airline said the move will further enhance Air India’s fleet and operational efficiency and strengthen India’s expanding aviation ecosystem.

Located in the proximity of Terminal 3, at the Cargo complex of Delhi Airport’s Air Cargo Logistics division, the centralized warehouse sprawling 54,000 sq. ft. (approx.), is aimed to improve the quick turnaround of the airline’s flights operating out of Delhi.

“This world-class facility will not only boost Air India’s fleet and operational efficiency but will also strengthen India’s aviation ecosystem. The warehouse will offer us more proximate access to and better control over our aircraft spares enabling us to meet any engineering requirement promptly – leading to improved punctuality of flights,” said Campbell Wilson, CEO and MD, Air India.

The warehouse will fulfill engineering resource requirement for maintenance and service of the Air India, Air India Express and AIX Connect fleet from a centralized location by integrating 16 subscale and scattered locations spread across Delhi and Mumbai into a consolidated facility that will function as a hub and feeder network for operations throughout India.
