“It is a very exciting time for Air India as it returns to Tata Group ownership and transitions its fleet to meet the rapidly growing Indian aviation market. AerCap is delighted to play a role in Air India’s fleet transformation by providing its first tranche of NEO aircraft on operating lease,” Peter Anderson, chief commercial officer of AerCap, said. “We wish Air India and the Tata Group every success as they restore Air India to one of the world’s leading airlines.”
“These four new, leased Airbus A321neo aircraft join our fast-growing fleet as part of the sweeping transformation in progress at Air India,” Nipun Aggarwal, chief commercial and transformation officer, Air India, said. “We look forward to continuing our very successful partnership with AerCap as we go along in our continuing effort to build Air India as one of the world’s finest airlines.”
