As part of synchronising its operations post-merger, Air India would launch a unified code 'AI' on the Chennai-Delhi sector with effect from tomorrow.
The domestic flights on this sector, operated by the erstwhile Indian Airlines and coded 'IC', would now be designated as 'AI'.
The Chennai-Delhi flight IC-430 and IC-802 would be coded as AI-645 and AI-643, respectively with effect from October 31, the Delhi-Chennai flights IC-437 and IC-540 would be operated as AI-644 and AI-642, an Air India statement said.
The Chennai-Delhi flights would leave from the Anna International Terminal, at 9.30 am and 8.15 pm, respectively, while the two flights from Delhi would depart at 3.45 pm and 10.50 pm, it said.
It urged the passengers, who have booked their tickets on these flights to check-in accordingly, it said.
Prior to their merger in 2007, Indian Airlines had 'IC' as its flight code and Air India had 'AI'. Indian Airlines' subsidiary Alliance Air had 'AA' as its code.
The national carrier, after the merger, has been in the process of merging these flight codes into one. It would also enable it to synchronise its flight operations, including ticketing, with that of the Star Alliance, the umbrella body of global airlines.
