Boeing on Friday announced the  addition of a new production line at its joint venture Tata Boeing Aerospace Limited to manufacture complex vertical fin structures for the 737 family of airplanes.

The expansion reaffirms the commitment towards making India self-reliant in defence manufacturing, a joint press release from the Tata Advanced Systems Limited (TASL) and Boeing said.

TASL managing director and chief executive officer Sukaran Singh said the expansion of the aerostructure manufacturing capabilities with the new production line was another landmark in the company’s collaboration with Boeing.

Airbus on revival

The Indian aviation sector is showing positive signs after being completely shut down during the coronavirus-induced lockdown but remains in the “eye of the storm”, Rémi Maillard, president and managing director, Airbus India and South Asia, has said.

Indian airlines are carrying 60 per cent of the total pre-Covid domestic passengers and this is better than most countries in the world, he said.

“There is a desire in people to fly again... Business travellers have started to come back... We are still facing a lot of headwinds with the virus. But in the midterm, I think there will be an upswing,” he said.
