Bangalore: National carrier Indian will be inducting two wide-body airbus A330 aircraft into its fleet later this year, becoming the first airline in the country to induct the aircraft powered by Pratt and Whitney PW4000-100 engines.
A document to this effect was inked by Indian's Chairman and Managing Director Vishwapati Trivedi and Jame Masotti, Vice-President Commercial Engines and Services for Asia Pacific of Pratt and Whitney at the Aero India 2007 being held here.
Reflecting on the MoU, which is continuation of Indian's 50 year-old association with Pratt and Whitney, Trivedi said, induction of A330 would enable Indian to raise its performance standards.
