Mumbai: Domestic airlines are wooing women travellers with discounts and an-all-women crew flights to mark the International Women's Day which falls Saturday (March 8).
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 tomorrow.
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 today.
All tickets, for both domestic and international travel, must be booked online between March 8, 2014 and May 8, 2014, with travel validity of 11 months, Jet Airways said adding the offer is applicable for both Jet Airways and Jet Konnect.
Air India, which has been operating an all-women crew flight to mark the International Women's Day for 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 both international and domestic sectors," an Air India official said.
Such 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 yesterday announced a special scheme for women travellers, offering upgrade to business class for Rs 999.
