Boeing's efforts to bag more orders

By Our Special Correspondent

NEW DELHI, APRIL 12. As the Indian civil aviation sector embarks on an all-round expansion path, Boeing has intensified its efforts to grab a share in the orders for new passenger airplanes from Indian carriers, particularly the public sector Air India.

The U.S. aircraft manufacturer today said the Indian carriers would gain by investing in the Boeing's 777-200 Long Range and 300 Extended Range, 737-800 and yet-to-be launched 787-Dreamliner series of passenger planes as they offered financial benefits and competitive advantages.

Addressing a press conference here, Dinesh A. Keskar, senior vice-president (sales), Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said Boeing had offered a ``comprehensive competitive pricing'' to Air India.

"Our newest airplanes for the medium, long and ultra-long haul markets are the right choice for Indian carriers, Mr. Keskar said. He said Boeing was in talks with almost all the Indian carriers, including private players Jet Airways, Air Sahara and soon-to-be-launched SpiceJet, for these and other aircraft for their domestic and international operations.

According to Mr. Keskar the aviation market in India was worth $35 billion and there was a sharp increase in domestic and international traffic from India that would spur the growth of the airline market.
