Celebi Aviation to invest €45 million in taxibots for Indian airports


Turkish ground handling company Celebi Aviation on Wednesday announced that it would make an investment of up to €45 million to bring Taxibots at key Indian airports over the next five to six years to provide eco-friendly taxiing solution to airlines and airports.

Taxibot is a semi-robotic equipment that tows an aircraft from the terminal gate to the runway with the aircraft’s engine turned off. This helps airlines to cut down fuel consumption by 85% during the takeoff stage as well as reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

“Our investment may go up to €45 million over the next five to six years if the industry takes to this technology. We plan to bring 30-40 Taxibots to Indian airports over this time period. Read More
