(MENAFN- Bangladesh Monitor)
Tata Group-owned Air India has issued a tender on Wednesday (July 27) to sell its three B 777-200 LR wide-bodied aircraft, which were manufactured in 2009.
In January of this year, the Tata Group, which took over Air India, is currently in talks with Airbus and Boeing to place a sizeable aircraft order.
The tender said that bids for three wide-bodied aircraft, powered by GE 90-110 engines, will have to be submitted by August 16.
Wide-bodied aircraft have larger fuel tanks that allow them to travel on long-haul international routes like between India and the US.
According to its website, Air India currently has a lot of 128 aircraft, including the aforementioned three B 777-200 LR planes.
The home ministry gave security clearance to Air India CEO-designate Campbell Wilson, paving the way for him to take over the airline.
The appointment of Wilson as the chief executive officer and managing director of Air India was announced by the Tata Group on May 12.
