IndiGo offers up to 10% discount to vaccinated passengers: Interglobe Aviation-run IndiGo airline is offering a discount of up to 10 percent on the base fares to customers who have been vaccinated against COVID-19, the airline said in a press release on June 23.
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.
IndiGo said that 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, Government of India. Alternately, they can display their vaccination status on the Aarogya Setu mobile application at the airport check-in counter/boarding gate," the airline said in a press release.
Hotels are now offering ‘COVID vaccination packages': Luxury hotels are now offering ‘Covid-19 vaccination packages’.
Radisson Hotel in Hyderabad Hitec City has come up with a ‘vaccination package’, priced at Rs 2,999, which includes a comfortable stay, healthy breakfast, dinner and wifi, along with “vaccination by experts from a renowned hospital” and “clinical consultation on request”, according to pamphlets doing the rounds on social media.
The Lalit in Mumbai, is asking people to “get vaccinated and rest” at their premises with two packages, called ‘Experience 1’ and ‘Experience 2’.
The first, priced at Rs 3,500, allows people to rest at a hotel room after the vaccination for three to four hours. The package includes a “set meal” as well. The second package allows those vaccinated to stay at the hotel overnight for Rs 5,000. This includes meals as well. But the pamphlet has made it clear that the offer can be availed only on the day a person gets vaccinated. So people need to carry a valid vaccination certification to “avail the…experience”.
