Note:

  1. Aircraft induction by the airline operators would be accompanied with re-delivery/export of their existing aircraft in line with expiry of the lease periods. The aircraft induction would therefore cater for increase in airline fleet as well as replacement of existing fleet over the time.

 

  1. Airline operators would plan/optimize their fleet over the time based on commercial considerations.

This information was given by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Civil Aviation Gen. (Dr) V. K. Singh (Retd) in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.
