India's merged national airline is Air India
 
Mumbai  (2007-05-25)

THE new merged airline from Air India and Indian will be known as Air India.

India's minister for civil aviation, Mr Praful Patel, said: "Since Air India is a globally and nationally recognised brand and is a designated airline in international bilaterals and the AI code is available only to the existing name, it has been decided that the merged entity would continue with the same name."

The National Aviation Company, formed after merger, will have its registered office in New Delhi and its corporate office in Mumbai.

The new logo comprises elements from the logos of the original Air India and Indian, namely, a flying swan (in red) with the Konark Chakra (in orange) placed inside it.

The new Air India will receive 22 new aircraft by year-end to increase its fleet strength to 138.

The subsidiaries of both airlines, Air India Express and Alliance Air, have also been merged to become Air India Express. Its aircraft will continue to showcase popular attractions of India on its livery.

Air India Express received a new Boeing 737-800 on May 24 as its 14th aircraft. It will add 11 more aircraft by next year.
