Indian Airlines History

Indian Airlines is based in Delhi, India. Primarily it focuses on domestic route, in conjunction with global services to neighboring countries in Asia. And Indian Airline is publicly owned. It is directed by Ministry of Civil Aviation.

Although the corporation that operates airline with the name Indian Airlines Limited, on 7th December 2005, airline was rebranded as Indian for advertising uses as a division of program to overhaul its image in research for initial public offering (IPO). Indian airlines works intimately with the Air India, India's national carrier. And Alliance Air, subordinate of Indian Airline, was renamed Air India Regional.

In the month of February 2007, Govt of India permitted plans to combine Indian Airlines with the Air India. After 3 months in May 2007, India's Ministry of Civil Aviation declared that Indian Airlines Limited (IA), India's national flag carrier and Air India Limited (AI), the govt have domestic airline, would combine with result from 15th July, 2007. The latest airline made by union was to be called "Air India", and would function in both international and the domestic sectors.

History of Indian Airlines

Indian Airline is made under Air Corporations Act, 1953 with an early capital 32 million and began operation on 1st August 1953. Two new nationwide airlines were to be made along with the similar lines as happened in United Kingdom with British European Airways (BEA) and the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC). Indian Airlines Corporation (IAC) captured regional and domestic routes and Air India captured international routes.

Seven earlier autonomy domestic airlines, Airways India, Bharat Airways, Kalinga Airlines, Air Services of India, Himalayan Aviation, Indian National Airways and Deccan Airways, were fused to shape the new domestic nationwide carrier. And Indian Airlines Corporation took over a fleet of 99 aircraft comprised 3 Douglas DC-4s74, Douglas DC-3 Dakotas, 12 Vickers Vikings, and diverse slighter types from seven airlines that formed it up.

Indian Airlines Limited is completely owned through Govt of India via holding company. It has 19,300 workers as of March 2007. And its annual income, with that of its subordinate Alliance Air, is well in excess of Rs.4000 crores (approximately US$ 1 billion). In cooperation with its subordinate, Alliance Air, Indian Airlines brings a sum of above 7.5 million passengers yearly.

On 22nd February 2007, Group of Ministers (GOM) permitted the fusion of publicly owned carriers, Indian Airlines and Air India. Under the name of Air India, formally two airlines became one unit on 15th July 2007 upon getting new Boeing 777-200LR with new costume of fused airline. The headquarters of new airline will stay in Mumbai. It will have fleet of above 130 aircraft.

In the month of December 2007, Air India was called to join Star Alliance. While Indian Airlines is in middle of fusing with Air India, it will efficiently be an associate.
