Over a year ago, the Tata Group acquired Air India, battered by years of mismanagement, ignorance, and a massive debt on its balance sheet. However, 365 days later, Air India has had a triumphant year, with a strong promise and the hope of becoming the iconic national “Maharaja” again.
The airline increased its on-time performance over the previous year, going from 70% in 2021 to 90% in 2022.
With a keen eye on the future, the airline has made significant progress in the last year. The airline has painstakingly created a roadmap to help it become a global powerhouse with an unyielding Indian spirit. In preparation for this thrilling journey, Air India has made several changes, including updating the in-flight menu, pledging to redesign the interiors, introducing new customer interfaces, and hiring more than 1,200 professionals in key positions.
