Tech Mahindra is one of the major startups in India, and it will be working with Airbus to design some of the airplane cabins for European aerospace corporation. A multiple-year contract has been signed between the two companies, and Tech Mahindra will be in charge of the cabin and cargo parts.
According to the Indian startup, its competencies and skills will be valuable for developing the cabin engineering business.
Research and Market estimated that this deal would secure the Indian company a base in the aircraft cabin interior market, which has a growth rate of around 5.87% and may reach $40.18 billion in 2025.
As the demand for aviation service increases, it also gives rise to the need for technological advancement in this field. Airlines also realize one thing that customizing the interior to their requirements is better than doing so after the planes are delivered.
For most aircraft manufacturers today, one of the most challenging tasks is how to reduce the weight of seats while boosting the number of passengers it can house. Another demand is an uninterrupted connection in flights as entertainment has become the second-largest income source for airlines.
To make their services more appealing to would-be passengers, most airlines want to offer as much as possible, but the strict safety regulation does not allow them to do so.
This is where companies like Tech Mahindra can help. They will conduct research on how to add functions like LED lights, flat beds, and mood lights without compromising with the safety standards.
Five of Tech Mahindra’s customers are among the world’s top eight manufacturers.
