Two new Boeing-777-300ERs to augment Air India One VVIP squadron

India is all set to receive two wide-bodied Boeing 777-300ERs (“ER” for Extended Range) to replace the ageing – the 26-year-old fleet of Boeing 747-400s currently used to ferry the VVIPs as a part of the call sign – Air India One. Each flight of Air India One flight would have four pilots, a dedicated team of doctors and highly trained commandos to protect the President/Vice/Prime Minister on board.
