Tata Sons is looking to cut costs and streamline operations of Air India and part of these plans include other operating companies TCS and TajSATS
The new owner will look to tap the capabilities and insights to overhaul Air India’s existing operating model and cost structure, said a TOI report.
“Did you know that TCS runs the IT systems and applications of most national carriers of other countries except India’s? Once the deal is concluded, TCS would step in to manage the A to Z of Air India’s IT and digital operations,” a Tata Group executive told TOI.
TCS is the technology partner for Vistara, a joint venture between Tata Sons and Singapore Airlines, and it also manages the IT and digital systems of Singapore Airlines.
TajSATS is a collaborative venture between the group-owned Indian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL), and the ground-handling and catering service provider SATS Ltd.
The report said this would be a part of the sweeping changes, starting with a new set of directors, that the holding company of the Tata Group would bring about in Air India once the ownership was transferred.
