Tara Naidu, former Chief of Commercial Air India Express, has arrived in London to take over the new post as Regional Manager UK/Ireland and Europe.
Naidu, one of the most successful aviation professional, will spearhead the national carrier’s new ambitious drive to capture a remarkable slice in the global aviation market.
Naidu was a key player in turning budget airlines Air India Express to a key player in the regional market.
Air India has recently completed 65 years of services to London.
During the first anniversary celebrations to mark the re-launch of Delhi-Birmingham services, Mr Pankaj Srivastava, Air India Commercial Director, said the national carrier is committed to increase its Birmingham-Delhi-Amritsar operation from four flights per week to daily services from November, when its 18th Boeing 787 ‘Dreamliner’ aircraft is inducted into service.
“Air India is committed to develop and grow in this market and once we have taken the delivery of our 18th Dreamliner aircraft in November, we hope to launch the daily operation from Birmingham Airport. “This will provide an extra 1,500 seats a week and give passengers greater choice, flexibility and opportunity to travel from the convenience of Birmingham Airport to Amritsar and Delhi, and onwards on Air India’s extensive global network.”
