Air India is the national flag carrier of India and has been providing air services since October 15th, 1932. Initially its name was Tata Airlines but later it was changed to Air India. It is India’s first international airline that offers a distinctive look with a red colored flying swan. It provides luxurious air services to international passengers at economical costs and discounted fares. Air India offers many international flights but the US is the most important international destination and a large number of passengers travel between India and the United States on a daily basis. Air India had the honour of being the first airline to start commercial operations from the recently opened Kazi Nazrul Islam Airport at Durgapur with a flight connecting Kolkata to Durgapur and back. The inaugural flight was operated by Alliance Air, a wholly owned subsidiary of Air India.
Chandigarh, which has been described as City Beautiful, is one of the first cities in the country that has been so perfectly planned. With roundabouts at intersections, which are adorned with seasonal flowers, this is also a city that is easy to navigate. The prime attraction of the city is the absolutely wonderful Rock Garden - an architectural masterpiece created by artist Nek Chand, using nothing but waste objects. The Sukhna Lake is another delightful place, which is ideal for spending peaceful evenings or going for a morning walk. This is also the site for several performances of the artistic kind. The Leisure Valley of Sector 10 has been built to offer a place where people can relax as well as exercise. The Open Hand Monument, which is located in Sector 1, is the emblem of the city and is a must visit. Sector-17 is another place that should not be missed as not only is this the best shopping area of the city, but also a great meeting and hang-out place. Several restaurants and eateries dot the central square and many a times, live performances can be enjoyed here as well.
