Significantly, the Tata Sons-Airlines' joint venture carrier, Vistara has become the first customer for the first fully-owned training centre of Airbus in Asia, for which the ground-breaking ceremony was performed earlier in the day.

The training package includes A320 full flight simulation, aircraft procedure training, computer-based classroom training, standard pilot transition training with the support of Airbus instructors, Vistara said in a statement.

The training will also include the new Airbus upgrade to command course aimed at improving skills and maturity of co-pilots that will take over the commander's role, it added.

The five-year contract will commence from the end of 2018 when the Airbus Training Centre (AITC) becomes operational.
