Air India has received a contemporary breath sigh of relief since its acquisition by the Tatas in January this 12 months as now number of grounded plane are now taking off to the skies.
The cash-strapped airline prior to its acquisition is now witnessing several of its grounded aircraft taking off to the skies.
Having a fleet of 70 narrow body planes, of which 54 are currently serviceable, Air India has said that the remaining 16 planes will progressively return to service by early 2023.
As the Tatas continue to make the required investments into the carrier, Air India is set to place a mega order for both new wide body aircraft, Airbus A350, and single aisles. AI’s widebody fleet currently stands at 43 aircraft, of which 33 are operational.
The airline had last Sunday said that this “is a significant improvement from 28 aircraft that the airline was operating till recently.”
