"What we will be offering through the bidding process is the integrated airline (Air India), which means both domestic and international operations (together)," Sinha, the Minister of State for Civil Aviation, said here.
On the disinvestment process, he said the government is still in the process of identifying which subsidiaries of Air India should be offered separately.
"Even if they are offered separately, if you want to bid for each one of them and re-integrate them, we are providing flexibility," the minister said.
Air India has a debt burden of more than Rs 50,000 crore.
