In a recent tweet, the national carrier Air India has declared a 75 per cent discount on basic fare on select classes for the War Disabled officer. On the other hand, their family members would also get a discount of 50 per cent on basic fare. The discounts will be available for domestic network.
Air India announced through a tweet that “We respect & honor our Heroes. Concessions for War Disabled Officers & their families.”
Air India has even waived off the rescheduling fee and ticket cancellation charges for travel on its flights to and from Kashmir till September 19.
“Waiver on applicable penalties of re-issuance, date change, no-show, cancellation & refund charges has been extended for travel from/to Srinagar for both dom & intnl flts, on all tickets issued on/before 9th Sept for trvl till 19th Sept,2016,” Air India tweet said.
Though the army men are not treated the way they should be, but such a gesture from Air India will help them smile in pain.
