AIR INDIA EXPRESS
The Air India Express is the India's first international airline that offers efficient service and good value for money. Their mission is to provide easy connectivity in short routes at most affordable rates and offer maximum customer satisfaction. Their fleet includes the state of the art 24 B737-800 aircraft. All the aircrafts of Air India Express have a single class (Economy) of travel with a capacity of 180 passengers. Each Air-India Express aircraft features a different tail design in keeping with the Indian culture, history and tradition. To its credit, Air India Express has thirteen aircrafts of which 6 are owned by airlines and 7 are leased. The airline is planning to extend its network in abroad and India over next few years. The spectacular design emblazoned on both sides of aircraft tails that portrays different features of colorful and traditional India is possibly the most innovative addition. The most recently introduced aircraft Boeing 737-800 is embellished with splendid artwork of ‘Raja Ravi Varma’. Air India Express is going to lease 8 more B737-800 aircrafts. Out of 8, four will be on dry lease for around 5 years and others will be on wet lease. The company which wet leases the plane pays by the hours it is operated. In dry lease, only the aircraft is leased out. In wet lease they will lease out the aircraft, maintenance, cabin crew, pilots and insurance. It is always costly than the dry lease.
