About

Air India Regional was the old name for the current regional Indian airline, Alliance Air. The airline ran under the Air India Regional name from 2007–2017. Before it rebranded in 2017, Air India Regional operated domestic flights within India, flying 170 weekly flights across 34 destinations.

The airline was founded as Alliance Air in 1996. It was originally a subsidiary of Indian Airlines. However, when Indian Airlines and Air India merged into one airline in 2007, the airline was renamed Air India Regional as the feeling was that the airline would benefit from the association with the Air India brand.

Air India Regional flew to destinations all across India but had hubs in Bangalore, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai. Its main hub was considered to be in Mumbai at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (BOM) but it flew regular flights from each airport mentioned.
