dated October 27, 1953: AI Proposes Far East Services

Mr. J.R.D. Tata, Chairman of Air India International, landed in Dum Dum airport in Calcutta after a visit to the U.S.A. and Canada. He told this paper at the airport, "We hope to start a new Far Eastern Service by the summer of 1954 and have placed orders for new aircraft. The Government of India have also to finalise arrangements with the countries through which our services will pass. As soon as they are completed, we can start new services on the Far Eastern route. With four frequencies per week, Air India aims to serve all travellers to European stations with both first and tourist class services. This matter was discussed at the annual general meeting of the International Air Transport Association in Montreal. Ways and means of simplifying formalities and procedures for International passengers were also discussed. We are pursuing a `facilitation programme' in cooperation with the International Civil Aviation Organisation.''
