Boeing to continue P-8I support
Boeing has received a three-year contract to continue its support for the Indian Navy's fleet of P-8I maritime patrol aircraft, the company announced on 19 June.
The contract includes engineering support and planning, in addition to field and logistics services.
The work will also include robust material support, including a 737-based component services programme, which will be executed in conjunction with Boeing Commercial Aviation Services' Fleet Services division.
The contract will continue the service Boeing provides under the programme's current initial production contract, which is scheduled to expire in October.
The Indian Navy operates eight P-8I for long-range maritime reconnaissance and anti-submarine warfare. Boeing is under contract to deliver four additional P-8I aircraft to the Indian Navy, with deliveries beginning in 2020.
