India’s flag carrier airline looks back on 18 very special and demanding months. She has responded very agile and flexible to the demands of the Indian health sector and pharmaceutical industry and has transported many tons of medical supplies both in import and export.

Air India has also extended its contract with CHI Aviation Handling GmbH for the handling of air freight in Frankfurt. The airline has been a customer of CHI Aviation since 2017 and is thus continuing the successful cooperation.
