The company plans to introduce more routes to Whitefield and Electronic City.
The Indian talent pool and Indian companies are contributing to enhancing technology and the digitisation of the aviation space in a big way.
The two aviation titans have been waging a rare public battle for months over the scarred condition of more than 20 long-haul jets that the airline says could pose a risk to passengers and which Airbus insists are completely safe.
The four-year course will include two years of classroom training and a two-year training in maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) at GMR Aero Technic in Hyderabad
The airline's board was expected to meet on Monday to finalise the deal.
The new routes to be launched from early September to early December will link Vietnam's major cities and its tourism island of Phu Quoc with Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Bangalore, New Delhi and Mumbai, VietJet said in a statement.
At the moment Jet Airways has not made a final decision on the type of aircraft it wants to procure and the contract is mostly going to depend on the manufacturer’s ability to deliver planes in a timely manner.
Airbus SE has emerged as the front-runner to win an order for as many as 50 aircraft worth up to $5.5 billion from Jet Airways India Ltd., people familiar with the matter said, solidifying the European planemaker’s hold in the world’s fastest-growing aviation market.
Christian Scherer, chief commercial officer of Airbus, said that Air India is clearly reorganising itself under the ''able stewardship” of the Tata Group and wants to invest in new planes to regain international passenger market share.
While Air India has zeroed in on Airbus's A350 wide-bodied aircraft for the procurement, the talks with Airbus and Boeing for narrow-bodied aircraft is still on, they said. A wide-bodied plane like Airbus A350 has a bigger fuel tank that allows it to travel longer distances such as the India-US routes.
His remarks came after it was reported last week that the Tata Group-owned Air India has decided to procure its maiden batch of wide-bodied A350 aircraft from Airbus and the first plane is likely to be delivered to the airline by March 2023.
The airline may introduce the A350 by the first quarter of 2023, according to a letter sent to senior cockpit crew and seen by Bloomberg News. Pilots must respond to the offer by June 20, and those who accept will be ineligible for training on another aircraft type for two years, the letter said.
The so-called commanded in-flight shutdowns -- when pilots intentionally turn off one of the two engines after encountering problems -- may have stemmed from different issues
The March summary report gives an indication that the B747s have been transferred to Air India and do not remain with Alliance Air. It is a given that the group will have to pump in a lot of money for fleet improvement. But the A319s and A321s are old. Will the group retire them and look for a simplified fleet of all A320neos eventually?
According to an Airbus court filing connected to a legal dispute with Qatar Airways, as of March the planemaker was producing 50 narrowbodies a month, including 27 A321neos.
Indian airlines may not be directly or immediately affected by the dispute. However, if Airbus loses the case against Qatar Airways, it could mar the aircraft maker’s prospects in India.
The new owner of the airline is considering various factors, including the efficiency of its existing fleet and a possible merger with Vistara, before deciding on purchasing new planes
Airbus on Thursday said it expects Indian airlines to order 2,210 planes over the next 20 years, up from a previous forecast of 1,900, citing growth in the country's aviation sector.
The fleet expected to be ordered by Indian airlines would comprise of 1,770 new small and 440 medium and large aircraft, Head of Airline Marketing India and South Asia, Airbus, Brent McBratney said at WING INDIA 2022 in Hyderabad.

Air India needs to look at potential replacements for its Boeing B777 planes, a fleet that’s a generation older. The 787 Dreamliner, while not that old, will also come up for replacement a decade down the line.
Airbus says the recruitment plan for India is in line with the company’s growth forecast of around 6,000 new hires worldwide. It is actively recruiting to fill positions in avionics software, aircraft system simulation and airframe structures.
At the showcase, Airbus India Head Remi Maillard said that one can expect long haul fleet in India to grow multi-fold in the next 20 years
Last month, Airbus said it would build a demonstrator to test propulsion technology for hydrogen airplanes in co-operation with French-U.S. engine maker CFM International.
While A350 is a wide-bodied aircraft, A220 is a narrow-bodied aircraft.
