Indian Airlines To Lease 5x A320 + 6 RJ

Tue Oct 24, 2006 4:58 pm

NEW DELHI: The state-owned Indian Airlines is turning aggressive. As part of plans to augment capacity and mount flights to newer domestic and international destinations, the board of directors of Indian decided to dry lease 11 new jets — including six 70-seater regional jets — over the next six months.

The board, which met on Monday, approved plans to lease five Airbus A320 aircraft fitted with CFM engines and six regional jets. The regional jets would be inducted and operated by Indian's feeder subsidiary Alliance Air, which is being converted into a new low-cost airline.

The firm is yet to finalise the aircraft type for regional jets. "Indian has decided to go for 70-seater jets, and the aircraft type would be decided based on the response for tenders," a source said.

Aviation Is A Passion.
