Airbus to partner DICDL in setting up aerospace cluster at Dholera

New Delhi: The Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) on Saturday said that global aerospace major Airbus has agreed come on board as a strategic partner in its endeavour to set up an aviation-centered economic zone at its Dholera Special Investment Region (DSIR).

According to DMIC, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to this effect was signed between Dholera Industrial City Development Ltd (DICDL) and Airbus India at recently-held Vibrant Gujarat Summit in Gandhinagar.

“Airbus will assess the DSIR region and provide its inputs on the requirements and infrastructure specifications for setting up the cluster, particularly for developing an ecosystem of suppliers for the assembly, testing, delivery and maintenance of rotary and fixed wing aircraft, including Naval utility helicopters,” said DMIC in a statement.

Dholera is one of the eight smart city industrial zones being developed in the first phase of the DMIC project.
