AirAsia India, the budget airline of Tata Sons Ltd and Malaysia’s AirAsia Bhd, will start with 10 Airbus A320s aircraft in the fist phase of its operations. AirAsia has sought to import 10 Airbus A320s for its India operations, which are all likely to be brought in within a year or roughly about one per month, said two government officials who declined to be named.
