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.
