As India’s first ever VVIP Aircraft, the Air India One Boeing 777-300 landed at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi yesterday, here’s a look at what makes the jet so special and different from the previous 747 model.

Capable of flying at 900 kilometers per hour, the US-made Boeing 777-300 has features similar to the powerful Airforce One jet used by the American President. Equipped with a high-tech missile defence system, the Air India One’s features include a jammer, that can block the enemy’s radar signal. It also comes with a Large Aircraft Infrared Countermeasures (LAIRCM) and Self-Protection Suites (SPS), that increases the crew warning time and minimises false alarms, automatically protecting any external attacks.

Other features include a mini medical centre, business class seats and a larger cabin.

The plane will be a part of the Indian Air Force (IAF) Communication Squadron.

The sleek plane has been designed as an in-air office complex and will be used exclusively by only Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Ram Nath Kovind and Vice-President Venkaiah Naidu.
