The country’s largest domestic airline, IndiGo, will offer a 10 per cent discount to vaccinated customers. Customers who have been administered either one or both Coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine doses can avail a discount of upto 10 per cent on the base fare while booking from Wednesday, the airline announced today.
The offer is only available to vaccinated passengers aged 18 years and above, who are located in India at the time of booking and have already received a Covid-19 vaccine in the country. Passengers, who have availed the offer at the time of booking, shall be required to furnish a valid Covid-19 vaccination certificate, issued by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare. Alternately, they can display their vaccination status on the Aarogya Setu mobile application at the airport check-in counter/boarding gate. The largest domestic airline in terms of market share in India becomes the first airline in the country to offer its customers a discount for getting vaccinated at a time when the Ministry of Civil Aviation has set a fare cap on seat pricing. IndiGo said it expects its move to promote more people in India to go and get the COVID-19 vaccine.
“Being the largest airline in the country, we feel it is our responsibility to contribute to the national vaccination drive, by encouraging more people towards this common goal. This offer will not only strengthen their resolve towards vaccination but also ensure that they can travel safely at affordable fares with IndiGo,” the airline said in a press release.
