Air India CEO Campbell Wilson disclosed during a visit to Apple’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California, that both businesses are considering future collaborations. Wilson, Dr. Satya Ramaswamy, and other colleagues considered potential for expanded collaboration.

They also went to Stanford University to learn about innovative concepts such as inventory and pricing optimisation, enhanced engine and emission performance, and other cutting-edge themes.

While the nature of the agreement is unknown, Apple has shown increased interest in India. The corporation has already opened two flagship Apple Stores in the country, with more on the way. Furthermore, by 2025, India is estimated to contribute 18% of Apple’s global iPhone output, indicating a transition away from a reliance on China for manufacturing needs.

According to the Financial Express, reports indicate that Air India and Apple are discussing a cooperative effort to improve the passenger experience and convenience utilising Apple’s technologies. Air India earlier stated in May that it will use Apple’s flight-planning software for its pilots.

Furthermore, Air India is a key Apple customer, making extensive use of the iPad family. This hints that the airline may be looking to further incorporate these devices into its in-flight systems, thereby improving passengers’ entire travel experience.
