Atlanta Airport Officials Meet With Airlines on India Trade Mission

Atlanta airport officials last week participated in four-day trade mission to India, a fast-growing economy that has long lacked a nonstop flight link to the world’s busiest airport despite heavy advocacy from a more-than-100,000-strong diaspora community. 

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport General Manager Balram Bheodari, Deputy General Manager and Chief Commercial Officer J’Aimeka Farrell and International Affairs Director Alrene Barr joined 15 organizations visiting the cities of Delhi and Hyderabad on the four-day India Aerospace Mission led by the U.S. International Trade Administration. 

From Sept. 19-23, participants met with civil aviation officials in the capital, along with international aerospace companies there and in Hyderabad, including Tata Lockheed Martin Aerostructures, which supplies empennages for the C-130 cargo planes built at the Lockheed plant in Marietta. 

ATL officials visited GMR Group, an infrastructure company with maintenance, repair and overhaul unit called GMR Aero Technic. According to a LinkedIn post from Ms. Ferrell, they also “met with executive leaders for several India-based airlines and contributed healthy dialogue to opportunities for mutual growth in India and the U.S.”
