U’khand: AI gives concession to flood-hit outbound passengers
New Delhi: Air India Friday announced concessional fares for flood-hit outbound passengers from Dehradun as it joined Pawan Hans Helicopters Limited (PHHL) to deploy their resources to help in search, rescue and evacuation operations in flood-hit Uttarakhand.
Coming to the aid of the stranded tourists and pilgrims, Air India announced it would charge 50 per cent of the basic fare for people travelling out of Dehradun to anywhere in the country.
The national carrier would also deploy special flights to evacuate people stranded for days in the flood-hit region, an airline official said.
PHHL has already deployed three helicopters in the search and rescue operations going on in the affected areas and would press into service additional resources in coordination with the state administration.
Air India top brass, including CMD Rohit Nandan, have donated a day`s salary for the aid of the affected people and appealed to all other staffers to make similar contribution, airline sources said.
