New Delhi: State-run international low-cost carrier (LCC) Air India Charters Limited (AICL) Thursday said it is shifting its headquarters from Mumbai to Kochi in Kerala.

"Head quarters of Air India Charters Ltd (AICL) will be shifted to Kerala in pursuance of a decision taken on Oct 8, 2010 in the 178th meeting of the Board of AICL," said the airline in a statement.

According to the statement, all operational and administrative functions will henceforth be shifted to Kochi, while the engineering functions of AICL would be at Thiruvananthapuram.

AICL, which operates international low-cost operations under the brand name of Air India Express, is a subsidiary of the national carrier Air India.

The airline was established in May 2004, after a long standing demand from Malayalee expatriate communities living in the Middle East who were seeking a low-cost budget airline for the region.

Currently, the LCC primarily connects 14 international destination in Gulf, Middle East and Southeast Asian markets to 16 Indian cities with a fleet of 21 Boeing 737-800 aircraft.
