Singapore Airlines said its joint venture, Tata SIA Airlines, has received the go-ahead to start a full service airline.

It received today a "no objection certificate" from India's Ministry of Civil Aviation.

The Singapore carrier had earlier received the official go-ahead from India's Foreign Investment Promotion Board to set up a joint-venture airline in the country together with Tata Sons.

Tata SIA will now proceed to apply for the air operator's permit from India's directorate general of civil aviation.
