AIRLINE BRIEF HISTORIES
India's international flag-carrier providing extensive passenger and cargo services from Ahmedabad, Bangaluru (Bangalore), Kolkata (Calcutta), Chennai (Madras), New Delhi, Goa, Hyderabad, Mumbai (Bombay), and Thiruvananthapuram to destinations in the Asia Pacific region, the Middle East and Persian Gulf, Africa, Europe, and North America. Established on 15 October 1932 as Tata Airliners, it became Air-India on 29 July 1946 and Air-India International on 8 March 1948, after which it started international flights to London Heathrow on 8 June that year. It was nationalized on 1 August 1953. International was dropped from the name in 1962.

FEATURES
On 22 May 2007, Air India and Indian unveiled their new livery. The logo of the new airline is a Flying Swan with the Konark Chakra placed inside it. The Flying Swan has been morphed from Air India’s characteristic logo, 'The Centaur' whereas the 'Konark Chakra' is reminiscent of Indian’s logo. The new logo features prominently on the tail of the aircraft. Individually the Konark Chakra also features on all the engines of the aircraft. The choice of colours namely red for "Flying Swan" and orange for "Konark Chakra" are meant to signify vigour and advancement. Further the colours also have a strong association with two carriers thereby retaining the earlier imagery of traditional hospitality and service. While the aircraft is ivory in colour, the base retains the red streak of Air India. Running parallel to each other is the Orange and Red speed lines from front door to the rear door, subtly signifying the individual identities merged into one. The same Chakra is seen also on Sari - the female crew uniform(at the End overlapping shoulder) and orange & red lines (a bottom border). Except for Dreamliner-787, the brand name 'Air India' runs across the tail of the aircraft in Hindi.
