Welcome back, Air India, tweets Ratan Tata as group wins ₹18,000-cr bid

Tata Sons chairman emeritus Ratan Tata shared an emotional note with an old picture of JRD Tata on Twitter after his firm successfully bid for Air India.

"The Tata Group winning the bid for Air India is great news! While admittedly it will take considerable effort to rebuild Air India, it will hopefully provide a very strong market opportunity to the Tata group's presence in the aviation industry," Mr Tata tweeted.

"On an emotional note, Air India, under the leadership of Mr JRD Tata had, at one time, gained the reputation of being one of the most prestigious airlines in the world. Tatas will have the opportunity of regaining the image and reputation it enjoyed in earlier years. Mr JRD Tata would have been overjoyed if he was in our midst today," Mr Tata said in the statement he tweeted.

"We also need to recognise and thank the government for its recent policy of opening select industries to the private sector. Welcome back, Air India!" the Tata Sons chairman emeritus tweeted.

The deal completes a full circle as Air India was founded in 1932 under the name Tata Airlines by family scion and aviation enthusiast JRD Tata.

Tata Sons will acquire Air India, 50 per cent of Air India-Sats, and Air India Express. The government will get ₹ 2,700 crore in cash from the sale. The rest is the government's debt, which Air India will take over.
