Fly via Hyderabad plan for MP travelers

Quote:
Good news for State capital frequent air travellers, who generally get stuck at crowded Delhi and Mumbai airports while taking connecting flights. A private sector airport operator has mooted a special time and cost -effective plan for these fliers.

The private player GMR on Tuesday launched Fly via Hyderabad programme for Bhopal air passengers. They can fly to 30 domestic and 15 international destinations while using Hyderabad as a transit point instead of Delhi or Mumbai.

GMR Hyderabad International Airport CEO Vikram R Jaisinghani said that about 8,000 passengers used to fly from Bhopal to Hyderabad per annum and State capital has potential to grow up to 60,000 passengers per annum. GMR has been doing route level marketing with various airlines to raise transit passengers load by five times in a year, CEO added. Flying Bhopal to Bangalore via Hyderabad would save one hour and 10 minutes time, he said.

The CEO maintained that Hyderabad is less than 2 hours of flying time from all the major Indian cities and 3-5 hours from Middle East and South East Asian destinations. He claimed that flying time between Bhopal and Hyderabad is two hours and is connected by flights of Jet Airways and SpiceJet Airline.

The company claimed that the new programme would offer easy connectivity to Bhopal fliers to destinations like Chennai, Bangalore, Patna, Guwahati, Trivandrum, Tirupati and Bhubaneshwar and overseas locations such as Dubai, Muscat, London and Kuwait.

Malaysian Airlines, GMR joint venture in talks with airlines to offer MRO services

Quote:
HYDERABAD, AUG. 22:
The MAS-GMR Aerospace Engineering Company Ltd (MGAE), is in talks with three more domestic and international airlines for offering aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services at the Rajiv Gandhi international Airport here.

MGAE is a 50:50 joint venture partnership between GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL) and Malaysian Aerospace Engineering Sdn Bhd (MAE), a subsidiary of Malaysia Airlines Systems Berhad (MAS).

R.V. Seshan, CEO, MGAE said the MRO facility has already signed five customers — GoAir, SpiceJet, Bank of China Aviation and two other undisclosed key companies.

There are few other companies in the pipeline also. I cannot divulge the names at this time. We will for sure close another three customers in this quarter, both Indian and international,” Seshan told PTI.

“All of them will be medium- to long-term contracts,” he added.

The MRO complex, which was set up with an investment of Rs 350 crore, can perform base maintenance ‘C’ and ‘D’ checks for A320s, ATR 42s, ATR 72s and the new generation Boeing 737s to begin with. It will build its capability gradually to provide maintenance services for Airbus 330s and Boeing 777s.

Currently, the facility has the capacity to do an estimated 200 aircraft checks annually, according to a statement issued by GMR earlier.

The facility has already obtained regulatory certifications from the Directorate-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) for domestic airlines, as well as the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for international flights, Seshan said.

The MRO facility is expected to help airlines deploy their aircraft back to operations in the fastest possible time, since it is located within the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) near Hyderabad airport, he added.

No growth in passenger traffic at Hyderabad airport

Quote:
Hyderabad, Aug 23 — The domestic passenger traffic at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport here has not witnessed any growth during the current year and is concerned at the development, the airport operators said Thursday.
The world-class airport registered 13 percent growth in the passenger traffic and handled 8.6 million passengers during 2011-12.
GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd (GHIAL), which operates the airport, is hopeful that there would be no de-growth in the overall passenger traffic as the fall in the domestic traffic is expected to be compensated by the growth in international traffic. It hopes to end the year at almost same traffic level as last year
GHIAL CEO, Vikram Jaisinghani told reporters Thursday that they see some good growth in the international traffic in the second half with international carriers announcing new flights or adding frequencies on the existing routes.
Out of 8.6 million passengers the airport handled last year, 1.85 million were international passengers. The domestic international traffic ratio which was 75:25 last year, is likely to become 70:30 this year.
The international traffic this year is expected to be 7 to 8 percent against 4 percent last year.
"Traditionally domestic has been high growth area in last three years. The domestic growth has been a strong 16 to 18 percent last year. Now we are not seeing this growth this year. There are a variety of reasons like difficult times for aviation industry, high fuel prices resulting in high air fare," Jaisinghani said describing it as a pan-India phenomenon.
He said if the fuel price holds out at the current level, they should look at small growth but any further increase would have its corresponding effect
Jaisinghani said the airport had come long way since it was commissioned in 2008, establishing itself as one the top three airports in 5 to 15 million category in the world and became a regional hub for south India and central India.
Currently Hyderabad airport has five domestic airlines operating to 32 destinations and 11 international carriers operating to 16 destinations.
The number of international carriers will go up to 13 with Tiger Airways launching Hyderabad-Singapore flight from next month and Cathay Pacific announcing Hyderabad-Hong Kong flight from December this year.
Silk Air is upgrading its frequencies on Hyderabad-Singapore route from five a week to nine while Thai Smile, a branch of Thai Airways, will be introducing flight next week taking the Hyderabad-Bangkok flights from four to seven a week. This month Indigo started a Hyderabad-Dubai flight.
Jaisinghani said for the second consecutive year, cargo was witnessing flat growth and termed it a global phenomenon.
"There is no de-growth but there is no strong growth either," he added
The airport handled last year handled 86,000 tonnes of cargo, a growth of 15 percent. The growth during last few years has been 18 to 20 percent.

Cathay Pacific to link Hong Kong-Hyderabad from Dec. 1

Quote:
Cathay Pacific Airlines has decided to further expand its presence in the country announcing the launch of new four-times a week service between Hong Kong and Hyderabad.

The new service will commence operations from December 1 and will be operated by Airbus A330-300 aircraft, with configuration of 44 business class and 267 economy class seats. The flight will depart Hong Kong every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. In the return direction, the flights will leave from Hyderabad on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

It will offer passengers greater choice and more convenience in connecting to Cathay Pacific’s international network through its Hong Kong hub. Hyderabad will be the sixth city to be covered by the Cathay Pacific Group, four operated by Cathay Pacific Airlines its sister airline DragonAir is covering Bangalore and will launch Kolkata flight shortly.

Cathay Pacific general manager (South Asia, Middle East and Africa) Tom Wright said the new service would compliment the existing passenger services to Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi and was aimed at boosting leisure travel between Hong Kong and India. India was an important market for the airline both in terms of passengers as well as cargo and the latest addition would boost ties between Hong Kong and India strengthening the former’s position as leading aviation hub.

EASY CONNECTION

The service would offer travellers easy connection to China, Australia and North America via Hong Kong. It comes close on the heels of launch of freighter service connecting Hyderabad to key markets in East and North Asia.

GMR Hyderabad International Airport CEO Vikram Jaisinghani said the airport was privileged that an airline like Cathay Pacific had chosen Hyderabad to operate its flights from Hong Kong.

Thai Smile to launch maiden Indian service from Hyderabad next month

Hyderabad Aug 24:

Thai Smile Airways, the newly formed carrier of Thai Airways, will be launching its maiden flight from India connecting Hyderabad with Bangkok from September 16.

Thai Smile, a light-premium carrier positioned between a low-cost carrier and a full service carrier, was introduced by the airline in July, connecting three destinations so far — Macau, Surat Thani and Krabi — to Bangkok.

Hyderabad will be the carrier’s fourth destination. Thai Smile will actually be replacing the Hyderabad service being currently operated by Thai Airways and upgrade it to a daily service. It will be operated by an A320 aircraft.

By Michelle Dunlop, Herald Writer.

Gov. Chris Gregoire has India in her sights as part of a trade mission in October.

The region's aerospace industry serves as the main draw for the trade trip, which kicks off Sept. 30 in Bangalore, India. The trip is being coordinated through the Department of Commerce and includes a stop in Seoul, South Korea.

India's aviation market is growing quickly. It's the ninth largest market in the world and is predicted to become one of the top five by 2020. A Boeing Co. study estimates India's aviation sector could be valued at $150 billion by 2030. The country's ministry of civil aviation predicts India will have a commercial jet fleet of 1,000 jets by the end of the decade.

Besides its booming demand for commercial jets, India also has expanding military needs. The country's defense budget could increase to $44 billion by 2016 from its current value of $32 billion, according to a Commerce Department report.

Participants on the governor's trade mission will meet with Indian government officials as well as private sector leaders. Many of those meetings may not be possible outside the governor-led trip.

The trade mission runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 11 with stops in Hyderabad, Delhi and Mumbai, according to Commerce's tentative agenda.

Gregoire led a trade group earlier this summer to the Farnborough Airshow outside London. The governor and her delegation met with dozens of aerospace companies, including major jet makers Boeing and Airbus. On that trip, aerospace suppliers announced the addition of up to 175 jobs in Snohomish County as a result of companies expanding in the region or locating in the area.

"Aerospace continues to be a bright spot in our economic recovery," Gregoire said in July. "And I want to ensure this critical industry succeeds and grows here long after my time in the governor's office."

Even as people across the country rejoiced and the scientists at ISRO stood up in celebration by clapping and hugging one another, the employees of half a dozen companies in Hyderabad silently joined in the celebrations for what they have done.

A few companies in Hyderabad have been providing components and critical parts to ISRO for the launches. One such company is MTAR Technologies that has assembled aerospace engines such as liquid propellant Vikas and Cryogenic engines for the PSLV, GSLV and Chandrayan satellite launch vehicles. Space is a risky business and there is no room for error. ISRO is choosy in giving work to companies and they are just a handful in the country, and MTAR is among them.

P Ravinder Reddy, chairman, MTAR Technologies, says, “We have supplied about 100 engines to ISRO in the last 30 years. We are also working on the cryogenic engine and trials have been completed. The engine will be used in the GSLV.” If MTAR Technologies has contributed to engine components, Ananth Technologies, another Hyderabad-based company, has been closely working with ISRO in electronics and embedded systems for avionics. Complete avionics system in the launch vehicle is done by Ananth Technologies.

Speaking about the contribution of the company in all ISRO missions, Dr Subba Rao, Chairman & MD, Ananth Technologies, says, “We started our association with the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, Thiruvananthapuram, in making sub-systems for launch vehicles like PSLV and GSLV.

Today we are in a stage where we are making complete avionics systems for both, PSLV as well as GSLV.” Ananth Technologies has also established a centre in Bengaluru which is dedicated to ISRO satellites, telemetric, telecombine, orbit control and power distribution. The entire mainframe for the satellite has been developed by Ananth.

There are a few more companies in Hyderabad that supply an array of products used in space missions, like heat pipes, ground fixtures and other components. Entry barriers are many in space business and the space is not for fly-by-night operators. ISRO sets very high standards and is very skeptical about outsourcing work.

Hyderabad companies like MTAR and Ananth Technologies have been able to make a mark for themselves and in the process set a precedent for new companies that want to make a foray into this space. “It is easy as well as challenging,” says Satyamuthy, a former employee of National Space Research Centre (NRSC).

P Ravinder Reddy is hopeful that in the future ISRO may outsource the component integration part to the industry as the volumes are going to increase. After the success of Chandrayaan and subsequent missions ISRO too is looking to provide work to the industry, says an engineer working on the Vikas engine.

Launching satellites is serious business and there are 30 to 40 different modules that are very critical for control systems in the satellite. MTAR Technologies used to supply five Vikas engines that are used in PSLVs. Now the company has the capacity to supply 15 a year. In the coming years, Hyderabad has the facilities as well as the manpower to become the hub for aerospace industry.

ISRO lines up more satellite missions

Quote:
Thirty three satellite missions are in the offing in the next five years, said Indian Space Research Organisation ( ISRO) chairman S Radhakrishnan here on Saturday.

He was here to attend the 10th convocation of National Institute of Technology of Warangal ( NITW). Addressing the gathering, Radhakrishnan said, "We have several challenging programmes ahead for the next five years. We have chalked out 33 satellite missions and 25 launch vehicle missions apart from a number of technology development programmes.

Development of advanced communication satellites with payload power at least three times of the current ones is on the anvil," he said.

Full-fledged air cargo hub in the making

September 16, 2012:

On one side, Cathay Pacific, Lufthansa and other international carriers are increasingly hovering over the Indian skies with their freighters, scouring for a perfect landing to bring in and take back air cargo loads. And on the other, heaps of potential air cargo parcels are lying at the warehouses of the Indian industry, waiting to be air-lifted and flown to their global destinations.

But the rendezvous between the two is not happening, at least not on the scale and speed that it should. Nick Rhodes, Director Cargo of Cathay Pacific, said, “India is an exciting market for us. We expect India’s contribution to our global (cargo) revenues to increase from 3.5 per cent to five per cent this fiscal and 10 per cent in the next three to four years.”
Major hurdle

Clearly, India has the potential to play a much larger role in the air cargo market, especially with international carriers looking at Asia as a major growth driver for their air cargo business. But the major roadblock is the absence of a full-fledged air cargo hub, backed by strong regional air connectivity and road network for the last-mile transportation.

It is this gap that the Rajiv Gandhi International airport in Hyderabad is trying to fill. Located at the centre of India’s production theatre with a strong regional connectivity, the airport is speeding along to become the country’s first full-fledged air cargo hub. Its advantage — more than 20 key Indian and other South Asian cities are less than two hours of flying time away and South-East Asian cities, such as Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok, and Middle-East cities are four hours away.
Untapped potential

Consider this: Hong Kong with a GDP of $230 billion handles an air cargo traffic of 4.2 million tonnes. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) with a GDP of $252 billion sees total air freight movements of 3.10 million tonnes at airports. And India, with a GDP of about $1.67 trillion, handles just 2.5 million tonnes. The country’s tonne-per-billion GDP works out to about 516, as compared to 12,883 and 16,951 of Hong Kong and UAE. The volume of air cargo is just over 1.5 per cent of the country’s total trade, but even then it constitutes 29 per cent of the trade value.

The 12th Plan estimates the domestic and international cargo to grow at the rate of 12 per cent and 10 per cent, respectively, with the total traffic projected to touch 5.9 million tonnes by 2020, with the share of international cargo at 3.5 million tonnes.

There is a significant untapped potential for air cargo in India. One can get an indication of this from the fact that the total volume of about 2.5 MMTA handled by all Indian airports is less than that handled by airports such as Memphis, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Incheon, Anchorage and Paris. A recent KPMG report has shown that the average weight load factor of air cargo during the last five years was about 62 per cent, reflecting significant unused capacity. In addition, the transhipment cargo, which constitutes as much as 60-70 per cent of total volumes handled by some of leading airports, is almost negligible for Indian airports.

“Thus, a significant potential lies for the Indian airports to become transhipment hubs,” the report pointed out. Hyderabad airport, which is currently handling cargo of about one lakh tonnes per annum (TPA), is favourably placed to take on this spot. Lufthansa has already nominated the airport as its pharma hub and Cathay Pacific recently added a twice-a-week Boeing 747 freighter service. Also, Thai Airways and Blue Dart are offering main-deck through their Boeing 747-400F MD-11F and Boeing 757F freighters.

In addition, about 18 scheduled airlines, including 13 international, have cargo bases here, operating close to 2,000 flights a week, thus, offering ample belly space for air cargo. The belly space ranges from two to three tonnes in a 737-type aircraft and 20-25 tonnes in the larger 747-type aircraft.
Initiatives

A senior officer of the GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd said, “We are taking several initiatives to become a hub, taking advantage of our location, infrastructure and connectivity. Our terminal capacity can be modularly scaled up to 1.5 lakh TPA, while our apron is being upgraded to Code F, capable of accommodating even A380s.” He explained that developing a cargo hub at Hyderabad can save both money as well as time for airlines and the trade.

Today, if a wide-bodied freighter flies in with a cargo load to Delhi, drops some of the load and hops on to another city to drop the remaining cargo, it would take a minimum of two hours flying time. “A wide-bodied freight consumes at least $25,000 worth fuel for one-hour flying time. This means, it would spend $50,000 just to ferry a part of the cargo parcel to the next regional airport. And this works out to about $16 million a year. Imagine, the carrier hopping to a few more ports to drop the remaining cargoes,” the officer added.

What the airport is looking at is that a freighter could land and drop its entire load here, which could then be dropped to at least 19 cities in its catchment area through its regional connectivity at much lower costs.

The regional frequencies from Hyderabad increased from 212 a week in March 11 to 347 a week in August 12. The airport already has a 33,000-tonne capacity dedicated temperature-controlled pharma zone, a 20-acre Free Trade Zone with warehousing and distribution and the integrated terminal operated by GMR and Menzies Aviation of UK.

New initiatives include cool container links for pharma products, general and temperature-controlled warehouses within the cargo village, promotion of road feeder services and 24x7 customs clearance of cargoes. The last initiative is particularly required for a full-fledged cargo hub as both Delhi and Mumbai airports have one-shift of customs operating hours, while airports such as Hong Kong, Dubai and Shanghai have 24x7 customs clearance.

All the airport needs now is a domestic carrier to turn it into its cargo hub. And on this count, the airport operator is in talks with a few airlines and hopes to seal a deal soon. “The infrastructure, connectivity and ancillary facilities are ready. Once we get a carrier, the airport will soon serve as India’s much-needed air cargo hub,” the officer from the airport said.

Hyderabad’s aerospace hub bets on first-mover advantage

Source: The Hindu Business Line

Quote:
HYDERABAD, SEPT 24:
The country’s first aerospace and precision engineering special economic zone (SEZ) is taking shape at a location close to the Hyderabad international airport.

This emerging aerospace manufacturing cluster at Adibatla will focus on defence equipment, commercial aircraft components, testing and calibration labs, a commercial MRO and flying training hub. It will also include design and development of satellites.

According to S. Ramadorai, Chairman of Tata Elxsi and Vice-Chairman of Tata Consultancy Services, “the Tata initiative that has brought international presence here can trigger a larger developmental advantage for this whole area as an Aero Cluster,” he feels.

Tata Advanced Systems, in partnership with Lockheed Martin, has built a top-notch facility from where it has begun deliveries of the centre wing box to be used in planes.

From no employee in 2009, this unit now has 700 aerospace professionals, meeting all aerospace technical standards.

“You will be amazed that the average age of the employees in three Tata facilities is only 23 years. An academy has been set up to train young engineers and mechanics to global standards of aerospace, adding to the national talent pool,” Ramadorai says .

Although traditionally one would associate aircraft clusters with Montreal, Seattle, Toronto and Toulouse, international outsourcing has produced spillovers and created new poles of growth, mainly in Southeast Asia.

POISED TO TAKE-OFF
With India spending as much as $36 billion (data for 2009) on its defence needs — among the top 10 globally — Hyderabad is well placed for defence and aerospace activities, since the city provides an ecosystem for the sector. Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd already has an Avionics Division, there are several defence laboratories, and active defence equipment and component manufacturers here.

Global leaders in aerospace have also set up their technology and engineering service support centres in Hyderabad. With over 700 engineering colleges and technical institutes, talent supply is not a constraint , according to Ramadorai.

COST ADVANTAGE
Global interest in India is on the rise not just due to defence offsets but also due to pressure on defence budgets in the US and the UK and their inability to leverage China as a production base. The country, therefore, enjoys cost advantages to serve and supply globally.

The Tatas have successfully tried to jumpstart a set of inter-related businesses in and around Hyderabad.

Their initial India-based Sikorsky helicopter fuselage assembly facility had found takers with upstream aerospace component manufacturers. It was then re-located to India and co-located with the assembly facility.

In turn, given the pool of technical and managerial skills developing here, Lockheed Martin is now more confident about relocating their Empennage assembly facility from the US to a location close to the other Tata Aerospace projects.

Already, significant interest has been generated across the world in what Hyderabad’s aerospace hub has to offer. Global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have stated that the existing production base in India is insufficient to address offset opportunities.

Like IT, the aerospace sector is very attractive to the local community because of the quality of jobs and fiscal benefits they create.

With the aerospace and defence industry going through very interesting times, the Hyderabad aero hub has the first-mover advantage.

DST-Lockheed Martin tech expo begins tomorrow

Hyderabad, Sept. 24:

The DST-Lockheed Martin India Innovation Growth programme will hold a technology expo in Hyderabad on Wednesday. The winners will showcase their latest technologies and innovations as part of the event.

There will also be interactive meetings between the winning technology innovators and potential investors. Several commercialisation deals are expected to be signed, according to a press release.

The programme was launched in 2007 by the Lockheed Martin-FICCI and the IC2 Institute, University of Texas at Austin. Later the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the Indo-US S&T Forum also joined. The Indo-US S&T Forum promotes several joint research projects between the two countries in cutting-edge technologies.

So far, the programme has received 2,000 applications. The objective is to focus on technology commercialistion strategies, venture formation, venture finance, marketing etc. So far, above 170 innovators have benefited and 150 agreements signed.

Top executives of Lockheed Martin, DST and FICCI will be participating in the expo.

One of the major objectives of the programme is to accelerate Indian technologies into markets in the US and around the world. It is one of its kind initiative, essentially as it emphasises on teaching and using world-class commercialisation strategies, the release said.

High time ISRO focuses on R&D

I feel it's high time that ISRO leave satellite building to the private players in Indian aerospace industry and focus more on R&D which is required to make significant strides at the world stage.

It going to happen. But its not happening quickly enough. The government is promoting Indian private companies and helping them develop the required capabilities. Currently Indian companies are integrating sub-systems. So the next logical step would be to aim for complete systems.

Talking HYDERABAD AERO IS GONE FLY HIGH

Hyderabad News.Latest news on Aerospace Hub at Adibatla beside Sri Sailam Highway

Hyderabad News. BL 24.09.2012




(Excl Ventures News.)
The country’s first aerospace and precision engineering special economic zone (SEZ) is taking shape at a location close to the Hyderabad international airport.
This emerging aerospace manufacturing cluster at Adibatla will focus on defence equipment, commercial aircraft components, testing and calibration labs, a commercial MRO and flying training hub. It will also include design and development of satellites.

According to S. Ramadorai, Chairman of Tata Elxsi and Vice-Chairman of Tata Consultancy Services, “the Tata initiative that has brought international presence here can trigger a larger developmental advantage for this whole area as an Aero Cluster,” he feels.

Tata Advanced Systems, in partnership with Lockheed Martin, has built a top-notch facility from where it has begun deliveries of the centre wing box to be used in planes.

From no employee in 2009, this unit now has 700 aerospace professionals, meeting all aerospace technical standards.

“You will be amazed that the average age of the employees in three Tata facilities is only 23 years. An academy has been set up to train young engineers and mechanics to global standards of aerospace, adding to the national talent pool,” Ramadorai says .

Although traditionally one would associate aircraft clusters with Montreal, Seattle, Toronto and Toulouse, international outsourcing has produced spillovers and created new poles of growth, mainly in Southeast Asia.



With India spending as much as $36 billion (data for 2009) on its defence needs — among the top 10 globally — Hyderabad is well placed for defence and aerospace activities, since the city provides an ecosystem for the sector. Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd already has an Avionics Division, there are several defence laboratories, and active defence equipment and component manufacturers here.

Global leaders in aerospace have also set up their technology and engineering service support centres in Hyderabad. With over 700 engineering colleges and technical institutes, talent supply is not a constraint , according to Ramadorai.

Global interest in India is on the rise not just due to defence offsets but also due to pressure on defence budgets in the US and the UK and their inability to leverage China as a production base. The country, therefore, enjoys cost advantages to serve and supply globally.



The Tatas have successfully tried to jumpstart a set of inter-related businesses in and around Hyderabad.




Their initial India-based Sikorsky helicopter fuselage assembly facility had found takers with upstream aerospace component manufacturers. It was then re-located to India and co-located with the assembly facility.

In turn, given the pool of technical and managerial skills developing here, Lockheed Martin is now more confident about relocating their Empennage assembly facility from the US to a location close to the other Tata Aerospace projects.

Already, significant interest has been generated across the world in what Hyderabad’s aerospace hub has to offer. Global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have stated that the existing production base in India is insufficient to address offset opportunities.

Like IT, the aerospace sector is very attractive to the local community because of the quality of jobs and fiscal benefits they create.

With the aerospace and defence industry going through very interesting times, the Hyderabad aero hub has the first-mover advantage.

I was a part of the expo, Mr. Evans was all praise for Hyderabad, it was indeed a wonderful event !

Expecting Lockheed martin to expand big time in Hyderabad, Also since Washington is now a Sister State of AP, expect Boeing to make its presence felt in the city as well !

I believe Dassault has some plans for MRO in Hyderabad. Hasn't they? There should be a news article regarding this somewhere in this thread.
