Air India mulls route rationalisation
Air India plans to rationalise some routes operated by the airline and its subsidiaries, including in the Gulf region. This is a part of cost saving efforts, according to the airline. The disinvestment-bound national carrier is discussing possible routes that can be rationalised starting from the winter schedule next month.
Two of the airline's subsidiaries, low-cost arm Air India Express and Alliance Air, have significant operations. Air India Express mainly caters to the Gulf region, while Alliance Air operates smaller aircraft for regional flights.
