Alliance Air is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Air India. The airline was founded in 1996, since then the airline has been flying domestic flights. Passengers can travel on Alliance Air to then connect on to an Air Indian flight to travel internationally, utilising the hub and spoke network.
Alliance Air was founded in 1996 as a subsidiary of Indian Airlines. When Indian Airlines was merged with Air India in 2007, it became the regional arm of Air India, and began operating under a new identity: Air India Regional. In 2017, the airline was again re-branded, as Alliance Air — which is the current name of the airline.
The airline currently operates flights to over 60 destinations including Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Belagavi, Chennai, Kochi, Delhi and more. These services are served by their fleet of ATR42 and ATR 72 aircraft.
