December 2023

As we approach the end of 2023, it’s only fitting to reflect on the journey we’ve shared throughout the year. In this year-end Nostalgia issue, we take a collective breath, glancing backwards to forge ahead. The promises of 2024 loom large, and for Air India, it holds the excitement of numerous promises.

This issue is an ode to nostalgia, a celebration of where we’ve been and a glimpse of the promising horizon ahead. It marks the end of a chapter, inviting us to reminisce before stepping into new adventures.

Our cover story traces the gradual rise of Air India, exploring the charm and significance of its early golden era. Peruse through curated stories from luminaries across various fields, sharing their cherished flying and travel experiences with Air India.

Embark on a global comic odyssey, discovering legendary characters in their places of origin or association. Comics, with their enduring charm, evoke a distinct and timeless sentiment. Set forth on a cinematic journey across India through iconic movies shot at breathtaking locations. It’s a unique lens through which we rediscover the diverse beauty of our nation.

In a bittersweet farewell, we pay homage to Mumbai’s iconic double-decker BEST buses and the black-and-yellow Padmini taxis that bid adieu in 2023 after decades of service.

As the year concludes, we extend our heartfelt wishes for a joyous festive season. In 2024, we eagerly anticipate fulfilling our commitments and giving even more enriching moments for our valued guests.

Wishing you a nostalgic yet forward-looking December and a wonderful year ahead.
