Campbell Wilson, CEO, and MD, of Air India, had stated that the frequency gain [ of flight services] to the US and other changes made months after the Tata Group’s acquisition of the airline was a sign of their intent and an early step to bigger aspirations.
The Tata-owned Air India is inching closer to signing an agreement with aircraft makers Boeing to acquire up to 50 737 Max jets. The airline may place a firm order for 50 737 Max aircraft with the scope to buy up to 150 additional aircraft.
