Thales renews partnership with IndiGo airlines for component support of 250 aircraft

Nov 04. 2015 

IndiGo Airlines extended its long-term maintenance agreement with Thales to cover a fleet of up to 250 aircraft, including 150 A320neo which will enter into service in late 2015.

Thales has been a partner to IndiGo since the airline took delivery of its first Airbus A320-200 aircraft in 2006. Through this Avionics By The Hour (ABTH) agreement, Thales will provide spares availability and replenishment to IndiGo with stocks located onsite at their hub in New Delhi, the airline’s main base. Thales will also offer IndiGo direct access to a pool of spare parts located in Thales’ Asia-Pacific repair hub in Singapore.

"As an airline that is committed to affordable travel with on-time performance, having a comprehensive maintenance and support program with a trusted vendor like Thales is of paramount importance," said Aditya Ghosh, President of IndiGo. "We have had great support from Thales these past nine years and we look forward to a continued partnership as our business develops."

Thales has developed a complete range of maintenance services like Repair By The Hour (RBTH) and Avionics By The Hour (ABTH) programs aimed at providing customers with the ability to reduce their maintenance expenses and component cost of ownership.
