New Delhi: Newly-appointed Civil Aviation
Minister Vayalar Ravi today said his top priority would be to
ensure that financially ailing Air India gets back its lost
glory and all flights are on time.
"My long term goal would be to restore the lost glory
of Air India and bring back its financial strength. I would
also strive to motivate the employees of the airline," Ravi
told PTI from Kochi soon after he was given additional charge
of the Civil Aviation Ministry.
He said he would also work closely with all airlines to
ensure on-time performance of all flights.
"I am very grateful to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
and Congress President Sonia Gandhi for reposing faith and
trust on me for giving me such a big responsibility," Ravi
said in reply to questions.
