Air India was established in 1932, under the name of Tata Airlines by J.R.D. Tata. In the year of its establishment, the airline's hub was a hut with a thatched roof at Juhu Aerodrome. It is now partly owned by the Government of India. The airline's first jet, named "Gauri Shankar", was delivered in 1960. The airline's name was officially changed to Air India Airlines in the year 1962 and in the same year, it was adjudged the world's first airline to fly only jet planes.

Based in Air India building in Nariman Point in Mumbai, the airline's main hubs are Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (Mumbai) and Indira Gandhi International Airport (Delhi). Operating both Airbus and Boeing aircraft, today, it is the third largest airline in the domestic market in the country. With a fleet size of 89 aircraft that include Airbus A310, A320 and A330 and Boeing 777-200LR and 777-300LR aircraft, the airline operates services to 49 destinations within India and 26 international destinations across South Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, East Asia, the Middle East and Oceania.

The airline has other subsidiaries like Air India Express, Air India Cargo and Air India Regional. It has partnerships with many other airlines too. Passengers are offered the First Class, Business Class and Economy Class cabin facilities. The airline has not only grown on the domestic and international market area but also on the technological front with the Air India online booking option available wherein reservations can be done through the web.

Air India Online Booking Services

Passengers can make reservation of tickets through online, authorized agents, telephone, the airline's call centers or across the counter at the airport. The online booking, which is the simplest and safest method of reservation, is done through the airline's official website. Clicking on the "Manage your trip" provides several options such as making a booking, checking for the booking already made and allowing web check-in. It also has a flight timetable, status of the flights and gives the option of redeeming points awarded on frequent flyer miles.

The "travel information" provided online gives details of various destinations that the airline plies to. The information provided on this link is especially useful for first time travelers because it gives full information about precautions to be taken before the travel and the services provided on the ground and onboard the flight. Air India also offers attractive holiday packages and corporate travel benefits. Under the "corporate house" benefit, the travel company is given priority in ticket reservation, given discounted rates and special fares for group travelers from that company.

With the Air India online booking, passengers can make reservations quickly and fly safely. With several awards and recognitions to its credit, Air India Airlines continues to grow and aims at joining the Star Alliance, which will help the airline increase its connectivity internationally.
