Indian Airlines (IA) Approval For 43 Airbus

Mon Mar 28, 2005 3:47 am

Didn't find this anywhere, so I decided to post it here....It seems as if the competition in India is heating up. Of course, with the Indian Govt., one never knows what's really going to happen until the deal is signed..  Yeah sure

Airport Economic Regulatory Authority on the anvil

Indian Airlines (IA) continues to cruise ahead through troubled Indian skies steadfastly. This is because its officialdom is aware of realities existing in corridors of airlines industry.

The airline’s top functionary has gone on record as saying: “Hope for the best; prepare for the worst”. With this kind of attitude or philosophy, nothing can go miss regardless of roadblocks.

The Minister of State for Civil Aviation Praful Patel has stated in the Rajya Sabha that the government has approved IA’s proposal to acquire 43 aircraft comprising 19 A-319s, four A-320s and 20 A-321s. "
