Air India Chairman and Managing Director, Ashwani Lohani has assured that the management is doing everything to revive the national carrier and the rumors of privatization will not impact on the expansion plans. He also added that they are doing all that is needed to financially revive Air India.

Air India is going to expand. The airlines are launching new domestic and international flights for which the recruitment process is going on. They are going to launch flights from Delhi to Washington, Stockholm, and Copenhagen in coming months. The Airlines has planned to hire 300 to 400 pilots and 600-700 cabin crew.

Airlines have inherited a heavy burden of debt of ₹50,000 crores. Besides, there are issues related to the amalgamation of Air India and Indian Airlines.

Ashwani, when asked about the privatization matter, has refused to reply. While he asserted that it’s government’s matter, not his domain. However, he denied that the privatization on talk had dealt a setback to the airline’s expansion plans.

Ten small 72-seater aircraft manufactured by the French firm ATR will join the Air India’s fleet shortly which will give a boost to the domestic air service to smaller cities. Also, the public carrier had plans to connect Indore with Ahmedabad and Jaipur from August-September.
