According to Ashwani Lohani, Air India Chairman and Managing Director, “8 of the 17 aircraft would be put back into operation by the end of August itself. These eight aircraft include four from A320 family, one B747, one B777 and two B787s.”
Remaining 9 aircraft would be retrieved by the end of October. This step has been taken for the maximisation of revenue.
