Tata Group is said to buy 470 aircraft from Airbus and Boeing. The Boeing order is estimated at USD 34 billion and the Airbus deal at USD 35 billion, making it one of the largest aircraft deal in commercial aviation history.

100 unserved and underserved landing sites such as airports, heliports, water aerodromes and advance landing grounds will be revived or developed by 2024 in an attempt to extend air connectivity across regions that are not yet connected.
