We are overwhelmed by the huge participation from our customers, which shows the trust and love they have for Air India. This brings new energy to our ongoing transformation programme, Vihaan.AI, and we are delighted to have our customers on board with us in these exciting times,” said Rajesh Dogra, Chief Customer Experience & Ground Handling Officer, Air India.
