The restoration of these aircraft will allow Air India to increase its frequency and network over the coming months, the Tata Group-owned airline said.

“It is another sign of recovery from the pandemic and caters to strong customer demand. More importantly, it marks the first step in restoring Air India’s fleet and international network,” Campbell Wilson, MD and CEO of Air India was quoted in the release as saying.
