The report quotes Sahara India Commercial Corporation Ltd deputy director OP Dixit as saying the company will be embarking on a mass marketing campaign from January 2003.

Meanwhile, the Centaur deal, which was announced on Thursday, includes the Centaur Airport Hotel in Mumbai, six flats in Andheri east and dealership of a petrol pump across the hotel, according to the Financial Express.

The report further states that Sahara plans to shift its corporate office to Centaur Airport Hotel and use the hotel for its airline crew to save costs. It has plans to expand its fleet and offer packages which include discounts and free stay at the Centaur Airport Hotel.
