Awards not anything new to Air India Express. Not that we are oriented towards it. But they do come our way, as we fly from one height to another.
The new one to be added to our shelf is the Management Excellence Award for the turnaround performance in 2019. It was a proud moment for everyone in Air India Express family when Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation (I/C) Mr. Hardeep Singh Puri presented the award to us at the 12th International Civil Aviation Conference organised by ASSOCHAM in New Delhi. Captain Pushpinder Singh, Chief Operating Officer, received the award on behalf of team Air India Express.
We were already riding the higher clouds as we created a unique record on May 31 this year, which is a dream for any airline in the world. The airline recorded a perfect 100% load factor on its international flights into Indian destinations on that day. In common man’s tongue, not a single seat was vacant on any of the Air India Express flight to India, every one of them were sold.
Then there was the double hat trick 99% load factor on six days of May this year. As we position our radars scale new heights, we thank all our family members – those who dreamed the dream with us and those who flew the dream with us – for encouraging us and supporting us.
