the company in its press release informs: "The Over Wing Doors are a critical part of the aircraft used for emergency exits. There are 4 Over Wing Door on the A321Neo aircraft. The structural assembly is comprised of machined aluminum parts which will be assembled by the AAI team in Belagavi, Karnataka, India and delivered to the Saab Aerostructures Assembly Line in Linkoping, Sweden."
AAI has evolved into a strong supply chain player for producing aerostructures assemblies in India.
A statement from the release tells us that AAI has been delivering door plugs for Airbus’ A321neo Cabin Flex configuration since 2017 and produced wing panels and D-nose assemblies for the A380 programme since 2014.
With this award, Saab and AAI further cement its strong partnership. Production deliveries will begin at the end of 2019 and ramp up in subsequent years.
The AAI facility is located within the Aequs SEZ, the country’s first Notified Precision Engineering Special Economic Zone (SEZ), at Belagavi, Karnataka. Aequs has been recognized by Airbus as a top Detailed Parts Partner (D2P) since 2016. The company has vertically integrated multiple stages of the supply chain – from forging and machining, to assembly and surface treatment – at its SEZ spanning 250+ acres.
Aravind Melligeri, chairman & CEO of Aequs Group said: “This contract, in partnership with Saab, represents another critical element in our support of Airbus. It further establishes our competence in delivering aero structure assemblies to global clients while creating value in the supply chain.”
