As part of efforts to clean up the balance sheet of Air India, which has a debt burden of more than Rs 58,000 crore, little over half of the amount is to be repaid by way of proceeds from the issuance of bonds by AIAHL.

An Air India spokesperson on Monday said AIAHL's bond issue with a three-year tenure of Rs 1,000 crore with a greenshoe option of Rs 6,000 crore has been fully subscribed at 6.99 percent.

Last week, PTI reported that AIAHL would come out with its bonds issue worth Rs 7,000 crore on 16 September.
