Air travel in India is easier than you think, and is often the best, and sometimes the only way, to visit multiple destinations within the vast Indian sub-continent. To get an idea of the size of the sub-continent, picture this -- a non stop flight from Delhi to Bangalore is 2½ hours and a one stop flight from Delhi to Trivandrum, takes a little over 4 hours. With the opening up of Indian skies for the private sector, foreign tourists now have several choices. The major full service Airlines operating in India are Air India (the national carrier), Jet Airways, and Vistara. All three, have extensive route networks, and cover virtually the length and breadth of the country. In addition to the full service Airlines, India also has several low cost Airlines, or no- frills Airlines as they are known, like Indigo, Spice Jet, Go Air, Air Asia and Jet Lite, all of which too, are now considered fairly reliable, and all of who too, have large fleets and extensive route networks.
In an earnest attempt to pave way for the emergence of a single entity as India's National Flag carrier, Indian Airlines and Air India, India's premier airlines were merged to form Air India to provide an integrated international and domestic footprint, for the advantage of travelers.
