The ailing national carrier Air India has decided to increase the domestic capacity by 10 per cent from March 29 to tap the summer rush, besides introducing in-flight entertainment on the metro routes, according to a senior airline official.
"We will also be offering an additional 10 per cent capacity on our domestic network through a greater utilisation of the Airbus A320 aircraft fleet," the airline source told PTI in Mumbai on Wednesday.
"The airline will also deploy A321s and A319s fitted with IFE on the metro routes in our summer schedule," the source added.
As a part of its capacity enhancement during the summer schedule, Air India will also operate five flights between Delhi and Bangalore, Chennai and Kolkata as well as four daily services between Delhi and Hyderabad for the summer schedule.
Three daily flights between Delhi and Patna are also in the offing, the source said.
