Air India About Air India

Air India is India’s national flag carrier airline. It was founded in 1932 with a private enterprise under the name of Tata Airlines. On July 27, 1946, the company became Air India. In 1948, after India’s independence, the government bought 49% of the company’s capital and authorized it to operate international flights.
On June 8, 1948, Air India operated a Mumbai-London flight via Geneva and Cairo. In the 1950s, the company opened new international lines: to Hong Kong, to Singapore, to Sydney, from Delhi to Moscow. It was expropriated in 1953.

In 1990, Air India organized the evacuation of Indian nationals stranded in the Gulf countries at the time of the conflict. The operation began on August 15, 1990 and lasted 59 days. In 1993, the company inaugurated the Mumbai-Dar-es-Salaam-Durban-Johannesburg-Dar-es-Salaam-Mumbai line and, in 1996, the Mumbai-Frankfurt-Chicago-Frankfurt-Mumbai line. It is one of the largest airlines in the country and is a leader in domestic flights. Both domestic and international flights are operated.

The company’s headquarters are located in Mumbai and the airline uses Indira Gandhi International Airport as its hub. It also uses Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport as its second hub. Air India is India’s largest international carrier with 18.6% market share. In 2014, the airline has become a member of the global aviation alliance Star Alliance.

Air India combines the future visions of an international and competitive group with local traditions. The company’s logo, the red swan with the orange Konark chakra, which can be found in the Indian flag, presents this symbiosis. The frequent flyer program is called Flying Returns. With this, not only Air India customers, but also passengers of other partner airlines can earn miles. The airline is also known for a special window design of the aircraft, which look like ancient palace windows.

In June 2017, the Indian government decided to privatize Air India.
