Tata SIA airline aims for first flight in Oct


Tata SIA Airlines Ltd , the joint venture between Tata Sons Ltd and Singapore Airlines Ltd (SIA), expects to start flights in India in the Hindu festive month of October, having secured a no-objection certificate from the aviation ministry to begin operations.

The airline plans to launch flights in early October, a person familiar with the plan said on condition of anonymity.

The airline was granted a no-objection certificate by the aviation ministry last week—the most critical step in the process of obtaining an airline permit from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). It secured approvals from the home ministry and the foreign investment promotion board earlier.
