Air India Express wins approval for three more aircraft

Air India Express has received approval for the acquisition of three additional aircraft, which are expected to fuel a major expansion in the Gulf region for the airline. It is believed that the carrier will look to add frequencies on its routes to destinations like Abu Dhabi Int'l, Sharjah, Muscat, Ras al Khaimah Int'l, and Kuwait.

Speaking to Arabian Business, an unnamed executive from the carrier said: “Air India Express was given permission recently to acquire three new aircraft. We will soon be floating tenders for their acquisition. The fleet expansion will be used to expand our operations in the Gulf sector.”

Air India Express had plans last year to increase its Middle East capacity, but these were thwarted by the Indian government's decision to pursue the now-imminent privatisation of its parent Air India.
