One third of wide body fleet to have modern seats, inflight entertainment systems by March next year: Air India

Loss-making Air India, which has embarked on a transformation plan, on Friday said that a third of its wide-body fleet will have modern seats and inflight entertainment systems by March 2024. Earlier this year, the Tata Group-owned airline placed orders for 470 aircraft, including 70 wide-body ones, with Airbus and Boeing.

"By the end of this financial year, the six new A350s, together with the 5 leased B772LRs and 9 other B773ERs we're also inducting, will mean that our wide-body fleet will have grown in size by 30 per cent within a year," Air India CEO and MD Campbell Wilson said in his weekly message to the staff on Friday.

He also said that by March 2024, around a third of the total wide-body fleet will feature modern seats and inflight entertainment systems.

"The rest of the fleet will then commence their full USD 400 million interior refits so that our hard product is up to a consistently high standard on every aircraft," he added.
