It’s Home! No, we are not talking about the ICC T20 World Cup trophy but Air India’s brand new narrow body aircraft. Although we have to agree, this new Airbus A320neo aircraft is not less than a trophy for Air India. The airline welcomed its first A320 narrow body with swanky new livery at the Delhi Airport on 7th July. 

The new Air India A320neo aircraft bears a registration of VT-RTN. This is a tribute to Ratan Tata, the former Chairman of Tata Group. The brand new jet flew from Toulouse-Blagnac Airport to Delhi, covering a distance of 6,784 kilometers in around eight hours and 17 minutes.
