US President hails Air India deal to purchase over 200 aircraft from Boeing

New Delhi: After announcing a landmark deal for purchase of 250 aircraft from Airbus, the Tata Group-owned Air India is to purchase an additional 200-plus US-made aircraft from Boeing.
US President Joe Biden on Tuesday hailed the historic agreement, saying it reflects the strength of the US-India economic partnership.
“The United States can and will lead the world in manufacturing. I am proud to announce today the purchase of over 200 American-made aircraft through a historic agreement between Air India and Boeing.
“This purchase will support over one million American jobs across 44 states, and many will not require a four-year college degree. This announcement also reflects the strength of the U.S.-India economic partnership.
“Together with Prime Minister Modi, I look forward to deepening our partnership even further as we continue to confront shared global challenges—creating a more secure and prosperous future for all of our citizens,” the US President said, according to a White House statement.
