September 23, 2013 Aviation, Headline News No Comments Email Email

egtmedia59Tata Sons, leading Indian business house responsible for launching India’s first airline way back in 1932 has applied for registration of a new Full Service Carrier (FSC) even as its earlier joint venture LCC Air Asia India received a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation on Friday. Chennai based Air Asia India is expected to begin operations in next three months.

Tatas will set-up the FSC in India along with Singapore Airlines. The new venture is set to fill the void created by the exit of Kingfisher Airlines that financially strained airlines Jet Airways and Air India failed to bridge.

Tata Airlines was rebranded as Air India in 1946 and nationalized in 1948 after India’s independence.

Tatas will own 51 percent share in the new domestic carrier that will be based in capital New Delhi. Remaining 49 percent will be owned by Singapore Airlines.
