According to an Air India advisory, Alliance Air is no longer a subsidiary of the airline.
The news comes months after Tata Sons acquired 100% of Air India after the government accepted its winning bid of Rs 18,000 crore to buy the debt-ridden state-run carrier.
According to the advise, travellers who hold Air India tickets with a 4-digit flight number beginning with ‘9’ or a 3-digit flight number beginning with ‘9I’ should be aware that their bookings are owned by Alliance Air.
Passengers should be aware that Air India will no longer process Alliance Air bookings or inquiries.
For any Alliance Air-related inquiries, travellers should call +91-44-4255 4255 or +91-44-3511 3511, or send an email to [email protected].
TATA AIR INDIA
Last year, Talace Pvt Ltd, a subsidiary of Tatas’ holding firm, won the buyout bid with a cash offer of Rs 2,700 crore and a debt offer of Rs 15,300 crore.
Tatas outbid a consortium led by SpiceJet promoter Ajay Singh for Rs 15,100 crore and the government’s reserve price of Rs 12,906 crore for the sale of its whole share in the loss-making airline.
Air India is now the Tatas’ third airline brand, with a majority stake in AirAsia India and a joint venture with Singapore Airlines called Vistara.
