Air India in record order for new planes

Air India has ordered 470 new aircraft – a record for the aviation industry – as the carrier pushes to become bigger global player.

Chairman N Chandrasekaran said the airline had its sights set on becoming “a world-class proposition”.

He said the orders from Europe’s Airbus and US-based Boeing would modernise the airline’s fleet and help it to “dramatically” expand its network.

The first aircraft will go into service at the end of this year.
