Boeing has been a strong partner of India’s aerospace sector for almost eight decades, both as the mainstay of India’s commercial aviation sector as well as an important partner in the mission readiness and modernization of India’s defense forces.
Boeing’s relationship with India goes back to the 1940s, when the Indian Air Force enlisted two Boeing aircrafts: the T-6 Texan, or Harvard Advanced Trainer, made by North American Aviation, and the C-47 Skytrain military transport, a military variant of the DC-3, made by McDonnell Douglas. Today, Boeing continues to play a key role in India’s evolving commercial and armed forces aviation.
Headquartered in Delhi, Boeing’s India operations include field service offices in Mumbai, Hindan, Rajali and New Delhi, and a rapidly growing Boeing India Engineering & Technology Center (BIETC) in Bengaluru and Chennai.
Proudly collaborating in the ‘Make-In-India’ initiative, which Boeing sees as a huge opportunity and a core element in its long-term business strategy in India. Boeing is focused on delivering value to Indian customers with advanced technologies and committed to creating sustainable value in the Indian aerospace sector.
Today, Boeing India has 3,500 employees, and more than 7,000 people who work on dedicated supply chain jobs with Indian suppliers across manufacturing, engineering and IT sectors. BIETC undertakes complex advanced aerospace work and supports Boeing’s global engineering growth. Boeing’s wholly owned engineering and technology campus with future avionics manufacturing and assembly capability is coming up in Bengaluru.
