Air India has floated a tender for aircraft for charter to “bring passengers from Iraq/ Kuwait to India immediately.”
The carrier wants aircraft (narrow body and wide body aircraft ) on full charter for bringing approximately 15000 passengers from Iraq/ Kuwait to India. These charter flights have to be carried out under supervision by Air India.”
Payment shall be made as per number of block hours of operation. So urgent is the requirement that the tender clearly states: “This is an open tender with preference to the party that can undertake immediate operations.”
The word “Immediate” occurs several times in the tender.
