Flag carrier Air India has commissioned a “mega warehouse facility” at Delhi’s international airport to facilitate storage of over 1,000,000 engineering spares.

The 54,000 sq. ft. warehouse is located near Terminal 3, at the cargo complex of Indira Gandhi International Airport’s Air Cargo Logistics division.

Campbell Wilson, CEO and managing director at Air India, said: “The warehouse is a major milestone for Air India and a reinforcement of the quality, professionalism, and investment that we are now committed to make.

“This world-class facility will not only boost Air India’s fleet and operational efficiency but will also strengthen India’s aviation ecosystem. The warehouse will offer us more proximate access to and better control over our aircraft spares enabling us to meet any engineering requirement promptly - leading to improved punctuality of flights.”

Air India said the warehouse would serve as the “cornerstone” of its engineering function, offering a one-stop solution for storing aircraft spares, tools and ground support equipment ranging from hardware to sophisticated and complex avionics, hydraulics, structural, pneumatic, and mechanical components.

The warehouse will enable maintenance and service of the Air India, Air India Express and AIX Connect fleet from a centralised location by integrating 16 locations spread across Delhi and Mumbai into a consolidated state-of-the-art facility.
