Air India Flights Booking

Air India Booking

With its headquarters in New Delhi, Air India is India’s national airline. Talace Private Limited’s Air India Limited is a Tata Sons Special-Purpose Vehicle (SPV). The Airbus A330-200, Airbus A319-100, Airbus A320-200, Airbus A321-200, Boeing 747-400, Boeing 777-200LR, Boeing 777-300ER, and Boeing 787-8 are among Air India’s 118 Airbus and Boeing aircraft. It now operates flights to 31 foreign and 60 local destinations. The airline’s hub is Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, with several focal locations across India. Air India is the largest international carrier operating out of India, with a market share of 18.6%. The airline became the 27th member of Star Alliance on July 11, 2014.

R. D. Tata created Tata Airlines in 1932. After WWII, it was renamed Air India and became a public limited business. It became the first Asian airline to get a jet aircraft when it received its first Boeing 707 called Gauri Shankar on February 21, 1960. Attempts to privatize Air India were launched in 2000–01, and after its merger with Indian Airlines in 2006, it began to lose money. In 2017, another attempt at privatization was initiated, with ownership of the airline and related properties reverting to the Tatas in 2021.

Through its subsidiaries Alliance Air and Air India Express, Air India also flies to domestic and Asian destinations. The Maharajah (Emperor) is Air India’s mascot, and the emblem features a flying swan with the Konark wheel inside.

Because of the large number of Indians residing within the UAE, Air India has always been a popular airline in the region. In September of 2021 all discontinued flights to the UAE from India were started again after the COVID-19 Pandemic started to subside. Proper precautions are still being taken by both countries to tackle any future obstacles.
