India - Airbus: Statement by Mr Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development
Paris, 17 August 2015
I congratulate the Airbus group anew for the great success that the signing of the contract for the sale of 250 A320neo aircraft with the Indian company, IndiGo, represents. It is the top Indian company in terms of the domestic aviation market and the total number of orders it has placed as of today amounts to 530 aircraft.
Signed on the 15th of August, India’s Independence Day, this contract for 26.5 billion USD constitutes a major action for our relations with India.
This order is the largest contract signed by Airbus in terms of the number of aircraft. It testifies to the excellent health enjoyed by the French aeronautical sector in the world.
