Building on the success of the Airbus Engineering Centre India (AECI) in Bangalore, Airbus India will also include strategy, customer services and procurement teams under one organisation. A Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) capability will be established, at a later date.

Srinivasan Dwarakanath (Dwaraka) has been appointed Airbus India CEO and Charles Champion, EVP Airbus Engineering and member of the Airbus Executive Committee is appointed the chairman of Airbus India. The existing Delhi Airbus liaison office will remain under the leadership of Ajay Mehra.
