Air India, the flag carrier airline of India, is headquartered in New Delhi and operates cargo and passenger flights. It is owned by Air India Limited, a government-owned enterprise, and operates a fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft, serving 94 domestic and international destinations. The hub of the airline is at Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi and is also spread across several cities in the country. The airline was founded by Shri J. R. D. Tata as Tata Airlines in 1932.
The Air India Logo shows a red-coloured flying swan with the ‘Konark Chakra’ in orange, placed inside it. The flying swan has been transformed from Air India’s characteristic logo, ‘The Centaur’.
The new Logo is featured prominently at the tail of the aircraft. While the aircraft is ivory in colour, the base retains the red streak of Air India. Running parallel to each other are the orange and red speed lines from front door to the rear door, subtly signifying the individual identities merged into one. The brand name ‘Air India’ runs across the tail of the aircraft. The Logo also mentions the name in the Devanagari script.
