The group has been named the sales distributor for Beechcraft products throughout India. The Wichita, Kan.-based manufacturer has increased its focus on the Indian business aviation market, which it feels has future growth potential.
“In terms of growth potential, India represents one of the most exciting countries for business aviation in the world. This is why we are strengthening our presence in the region with this appointment," said Richard Emery, president for Beechcraft's Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific division.
Arrow was formed in 2009, based in New Delhi with offices in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as well.
Beechcraft and Arrow plan to launch the partnership with a King Air 250 regional demonstrator tour across India next week.
