Air India One, a Boeing 777 aircraft, will fly the President, Vice President and the Prime Minister on international state Visits. Currently, they travel on Air India’s Boeing747 planes, which have served for nearly 25 years. Air India has received the first two Boeing 777 aircraft which have cost an estimated Rs.8,400 crore. These VVIP aircraft, built in America, will be operated by the Indian Air Force. One aircraft reached India after undergoing retro-fitment in the US for over two years. The second aircraft will reach India by October end. The aircraft is equipped with missile defence systems, large Aircraft infrared Countermeasures and self-protection Suites. Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures consist of missile warning sensors, a laser transmitter assembly, control interface unit, and processors to detect, track, jam and counter incoming infrared missiles. This brings Air India One on par with Air Force One, which flies the Us President. The aircraft also includes a VVIP suite, two conference rooms, a press briefing room, a medical room, secure communication rooms with network jammers. Air India One has been painted with Ashok Emblem on one side, Bharat’ in Hindi and ‘India’ in English on the other side. Also, the tail has the Indian National Flag painted on it.
