June 11 - Air India’s parent company, National Aviation Company of India Limited (NACIL) held a special board meeting in New Delhi on Thursday to address problems in the Gulf region.Decisions were made to replace aging aircrafts flying in the Middle East. Standby aircrafts and special technical support will also be deployed to handle delays and problems affecting the airline’s service.
UAE based businessman M.A.Yousuf Ali, a member of the board of directors, proposed the meeting following a series of events affecting the airline’s service to Gulf-based passengers over the last several months. After the meeting was held NACIL chairman and managing director Arvind Jadhav instructed officials to make sure there were never any flight delays of more than two hours. To achieve this aim, the officials have decided to replace the aged fleet: “Old aircrafts flying in the Gulf sector will be replaced by newer ones.”
In order to minimize frequent delays caused by technical problems, an aircraft will be stationed on standby mode at Calicut airport that will replace any flight delayed for technical reasons.
