Indian came into being with the enactment of the Air Corporations Act, 1953.It was renamed Indian on December 7, 2005 from its earlier name Indian Airlines.

The entry of low-cost airlines like Air Deccan, Kingfisher Airlines and SpiceJet has revolutionized the Indian aviation scenario. Indian has been a pioneer in the aviation scene in India. It was the first airline in India to introduce the wide-bodied A300 aircraft on the domestic network, the fly-by-wire A320, walk in flights and easy fares. It flies to 76 destinations - 58 within India and 18 abroad.
