Air India Business Class
Air India is India’s premier national, publicly owned air transportation company. J.R.D. Tata is the father of passenger aviation in India founded Air India. He took off from Karachi, in a small single-engine plane on his flight to Bombay (Modern Day Mumbai) out of Ahmedabad in October 1932. He then landed his consignment of mail on a grass strip in Juhu, Mumbai. At Mumbai (then Bombay), Neville Vintcent, a British RAF pilot who immigrated to India three years earlier while on an aerial exhibition tour, took over from J.R.D. Tata and flew the small plane to Chennai (then Madras). Air India was born.

How to Book Business Class with Air India
Most airlines sell specialty air packages exclusively through travel agents. The agents will charge you a fee for what they know, but they can also help you work out complex itineraries, and avoid unforeseen disappointments. Agents who specialize in international travel can usually get you a better deal, or at least help you pick the right routes to maximize your travel value. You can book through a virtual agent, or directly at the Air India website. However, as mentioned, deals such as the Companion Free Scheme are only offered exclusively through registered travel agencies, so the benefits should be clear.
