@HardeepSPuri We commemorate the induction of the first Jumbo 747 aircraft into the @airindiain fleet on 18th April in 1971. One of many workhorses to fly in the skies, this wide bodied aircraft marked the beginning of a new era in passenger travel.

@IATA As we mark IATA’s 75th anniversary during these challenging times, we recommit ourselves to representing, leading, and serving the #airline industry. We will get through this crisis together.
