Air India became the first airline in the world to use a TaxiBot

National carrier Air India (AI) became the first airline in the world to use a TaxiBot on an Airbus A320 aircraft operating a commercial flight with passengers onboard. The aircraft of AI 665 Delhi-Mumbai flight was brought to the runway at Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) airport’s Terminal 3 using the TaxiBot. The aircraft was flagged off by Air India Chief Managing Director Ashwani Lohani. The move of Air India is towards a cleaner environment. Air India's Taxibot: ♦ AI's TaxiBot can tow an aircraft with its engines switched off. ♦ This will help in saving fuel, bringing down consumption by as much as 85% used during taxiing of aircraft. ♦ It also aims to reduce the wear and tear of the engine and curb carbon emission, thus improving air quality.  ♦ The TaxiBots will also help in decongesting boarding gates and apron area by providing efficient pushbacks. Note: A TaxiBot is a pilot-controlled semi-robotic towbar-less aircraft tractor. It is used as alternate taxiing equipment. It is used for taxiing an aircraft from parking bay to runway and vice versa.
