Both these steps are part of Air India’s mission to become a world-class airline. Tata signed an agreement to buy 470 aircraft from Boeing and Airbus a few days ago. These also include 70 large aircraft. The airline plans to lease 36 aircraft acquired by the Tata group in January 2022 and two B777-200LRs have already been inducted.
