Airbus and Dynamatic Technologies to Manufacture A220 Doors in India

  • Union Minister of Civil Aviation & Steel, Shri Jyotiraditya M. Scindia, announced Airbus’s expansion in its “Make-in-India” initiative.
  • Airbus and Dynamatic Technologies have partnered to manufacture all doors for the single-aisle A220 family aircraft in India. 
  • The partnership is part of Airbus’s “Make in India” mission, with Airbus exporting made-in-India products worth $750 million and aiming to double this in the next year. 
  • The A220 aircraft is ideally suited for India’s UDAN scheme, aiming to enhance regional connectivity and promote economic growth. 
  • The manufacturing facility will offer an opportunity for the Indian private sector to enter a technology-intensive and competitive aviation industry. 
  • This is the second contract for doors awarded by Airbus to an Indian supplier, marking the first time an Indian company will do system integration work for an Airbus aircraft. 
  • Airbus’s partnership with local manufacturers supports nearly 10,000 jobs in India, with a projected increase to about 15,000 by 2025. 
  • The collaboration will create a downstream value chain for detailed parts to be manufactured by other Indian suppliers, marking one of the largest export contracts for an Indian aerospace manufacturing company to date.
