Air Asia India commences revolutionary TaxiBot passenger operations in India

AirAsia India today announced the implementation of an Alternate Taxiing Solution, TaxiBot. AirAsia India tied up with KSU Aviation the exclusive operator of the TaxiBot in India. It is a semi-robotic towbarless aircraft movement device developed by Israel Aerospace Industries. The Taxibot can tow an aircraft from the terminal gate to the take-off point and return it to the gate after landing without utilizing the aircraft engines. The Taxibot significantly reduces aircraft fuel usage, emissions and noise levels at airports, and the risk of foreign object and jet blast damage, and operates with a hybrid-electric engine.

AirAsia India is the first Airbus operator in the world to start TaxiBot services with passengers onboard with a modified Airbus fleet. TaxiBot is proclaimed as the green revolution in airplane taxiing, helping enhance fuel efficiency and predictive maintenance and services. “We’re delighted to announce the initiation of TaxiBot operations towards enhancing sustainable aviation operations and leveraging technology to drive differentiation and operational efficiency. It is a proud moment for AirAsia India to be the first Airbus operator in the world to start TaxiBot services with passengers onboard with a modified Airbus fleet. We look forward to continuing to explore and undertake new and inspiring possibilities in aviation and lead the way forward,” said Sunil Bhaskaran, MD & CEO, AirAsia India.
