A member of Star Alliance since 2014, Air India is the largest international carrier in India. It, thus, played a vital role in evacuation missions during the Gulf War, the pandemic, and the recent Ukraine war. The main reason India could support its country in times of need is that it flies to many destinations around the globe.
