Women’s Day: Jet, GoAir offer discount, Air India all-women crew flight

Women travelers will get a 10 percent discount, for online bookings between March 8 and May 8, with travel validity of 11 months.

Domestic airlines are wooing women travelers with discounts and an all-women crew flights to mark the International Women’s Day, which falls on Saturday.

While private carrier Jet Airways has announced discounted tickets, with a two-months booking window and 11 months validity, budget carrier GoAir has offered upgrade to business class at low prices.

The national carrier Air India is mulling an all-women crew flight.

Naresh Goyal-promoted Jet Airways has offered discounted fares to women travellers with a two-month booking period, starting from Saturday.

Under the offer, women travellers will get a special 10 percent discount on base fares for international journey and a similar discount on base fare and fuel surcharge for domestic travel, it said on Friday.

All tickets, for both domestic and international travel, must be booked online between March 8 and May 8, with travel validity of 11 months, Jet Airways said adding the offer was applicable for Jet Airways and Jet Konnect.

Air India, which has been operating an all-women crew flight to mark the International Women’s Day for the last few years, now plans a similar flight this year too.

“We have been operating such flights for the last several years. And this year also, we will be operating flights with all-women crew on international and domestic sectors,” an Air India official said.

Such a move sends out a strong message that women are no different from the men when it comes to the tough job of flying, the official said.

Nusli Wadia promoted GoAir had on Friday announced a special scheme for women travelers, offering upgrade to business class for Rs.999.
