The appointment of Arora comes on the day when Indian Airlines is celebrating its Golden Jubilee.

Arora would take over from J N Gogoi, whose six-month extension as the acting MD, ended on Thursday. Gogoi had joined Air-India in 1969.

Arora's appointment is likely to strengthen synergy between the domestic and international carriers.

His appointment assumes significance as both Air-India and Indian Airlines are in the process of expanding their fleet.
