Air India back to business, Low fares rain for travelers
After a setback to its operations for few weeks, Air India has restarted about 210 flights out of it scheduled 225 to all its domestic destinations in the country from Tuesday May 10, 2011. The airline has registered around 80% of bookings as it continues low promotional fares for attracting summer travelers.
The airline has also announced that the 50% reduction scheme would continue till May 12 and it would be followed by a scheme under which passengers can avail 20% discount on all daily fares. The airline is on a plan to emerge as most economic option for Indian flight travelers.
This fare reduction is a result of the wide-bodies aircrafts induced by the Airline earlier which would carry more passengers between metros at reduced per seat cost to the airline and offering the same benefit in the form of promotional fares.
Following the strike ended last week, the carrier has reinstated the 15 sacked pilots and has started complete operations. The Airline plans to continue its restructuring plan as scheduled earlier and promote the airline further, which should result in further discounts and offers for customers in days to come.
