Aviation: Air India starts using food stocked from India on its return international flights


Air India’s Chairman and Managing Director Pradeep Singh Kharola said Wednesday the airline has started carrying food from India for use during the journey back to the country, in an attempt to rationalise catering costs on international flights.
