A cheap flights promotion has boosted passengers numbers for a major Indian airline.
Air India has announced that its latest cheap flights promotion has been a big success, with up to 85 per cent capacity recorded over the past week.
The promotional fares, which end today (May 19th), offer cheap flights to India from various domestic airports, including Srinagar to Delhi for as little as 2,914 rupees (£40).
As a result of this, Air India’s domestic flights have been at least 80 per cent full from May 10th to 18th.
A spokesman for Air India said: “This shows the immense faith our passengers have in Air India’s service.”
This rise in popularity comes after a major pilots’ strike suspended operations on the 107-route domestic network for ten days.
Meanwhile, Air India has also announced that is has joined the Star Alliance codeshare scheme, which means that passengers can enjoy added benefits, including seamless transfers, more frequent-flyer points and lounge facilities.
