The Tata group, already present in the airline business, has shown interest in buying Air India, which was once owned by Tata.

The Tata group may go ahead with the bid, while its joint venture airline, Singapore Airlines, has refused to join Air India's bid due to concerns over Kovid-19. The group is currently giving due importance to the airlines. The bid deadline is 31 August and the government is not in favor of extending this date.

Vistara has significantly expanded its operations to include nine Boeing 737-800NG aircraft in its fleet in 2019, taking its number of aircraft to 31, helping the company expand its network by more than 50 percent Is received.
