School for Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (SAME) is part of the InterGlobe group. The InterGlobe group comprises various companies including InterGlobe Hotels, a joint venture with the world-renowned Accor Hotels, InterGlobe Technologies, a travel services technology company partnering with world renowned distribution systems Galileo and Worldspan, and InterGlobe Aviation, which operates the largest Indian airline under the brand-name of IndiGo, and which possesses a fleet of over 100 Airbus A320 aircrafts, with 430 more aircraft on order.
InterGlobe believes that as a consequence of the rapid growth in air traffic demand, coupled with the expansion of the civil aviation aircraft fleet in the country, the Indian aviation sector will face a shortage of high-quality trained, and skilled human resource for aircraft maintenance purposes. The InterGlobe group is committed to the continued growth and professionalization of the airline sector, and in keeping with that objective is establishing SAME – an AME Training School for meeting the requirements of the airline and MRO industry in India including our own group company.
