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.
One of the oldest cities in India, Patna is the capital of the Indian state of Bihar. Its position on the southern banks of the Ganga River has blessed it with beauty and purity. The city holds a strong religious significance for Sikhs as it was the place where the last Sikh Guru - Guru Gobind Singh Ji was born. After Kolkata, this city has been rated as the largest metropolis and the most fast developing cities in eastern India. From historical edifices to museums, temples and more, there are plenty of attractions that tempt visitors from all corners of India and beyond for a visit.
