India was the pioneer of Civil Aviation in Asia, with Tata Airlines introducing JRD Tata’s first flight on Oct 15th, 1932, from Karachi to Bombay. It created aviation history when JRD Tata flew by airmail from Karachi’s Drigh Road Aerodrome to Bombay’s Juhu Airstrip via Ahmedabad. JRD Tata’s historic flight carrying airmail marked the birth of civil aviation in Asia. This was the first flight of the Aviation Division of Tata Sons Ltd. and was, in one sense, the first flight ever by a truly Indian enterprise.

India’s first commercial flight was flown by JRD Tata, a pioneer aviator and industrial tycoon. The aircraft was a single-engined De Havilland Puss Moth, and it carried 25 kg of 4-anna airmail letters. The De Havilland Puss Moth is a British three-seater high-wing monoplane airplane designed and built by the De Havilland Aircraft Company between 1929 and 1933. It flew at a speed approaching 124 mph, making it one of the highest-performance private aircraft of its era. The Aviation Department of Tata Sons Ltd. became Tata Air Services in 1938 and was renamed Tata Airlines in the same year. Tata Air Lines converted into a public company and was renamed Air India Limited. In 1948, 49% of the airline was acquired by the

The government of India and a new entity Air India International were incorporated as the designated flag carrier. This was taken over by the Government of India and nationalized on August 1, 1953, becoming India’s exclusive airline for overseas services. On June 8, 1962, the airline’s name was officially changed to Air India. And, now Air India is again part of the Tata Group!
