In addition they want to add 16 "50-seat turboprops" (ATR 42 I assume) and 6 "70-seat regional jets" via purchase.
The airline has already floated global tenders to lease up to ten wide-bodied Airbus aircraft. This is in addition to the purchase of 16 50-seater turboprob and six 70-seater regional jets.
Indian Airlines will go for A330-200 or A330-300 aircraft with Pratt & Whittney’s PW4000 series engines on dry lease basis for five years, which can be extended to another five years.
