Air Asia India to offer 50,000 free seats to Indian Armed Forces

                                  Ahead of India’s 74th Independence Day, AirAsia India has announced the AirAsia RedPass initiative for Indian armed forces personnel in recognition of their contribution to the nation, defending democracy and security. In keeping with the long-standing commitment to nation-building, AirAsia India is offering 50,000 seats on flights across its domestic network as part of this initiative. In addition, the airline also offers Armed Forces personnel priority boarding and priority baggage service at all airport stations.

In June, at the height of the initial response to the pandemic, AirAsia India announced the AirAsia RedPass initiative offering a goodwill trip for doctors across the country, which received an overwhelming positive response. In recognition of their sacrifices and long stints away from their own homes to ensure that we all remain safe in ours, the airline now proudly extends the AirAsia RedPass to all Indian Armed Forces including the Indian Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Paramilitary Forces and Under Trainee Cadets. The AirAsia RedPass offer is also extended to dependants of serving personnel and retired Indian Armed Forces personnel in recognition of their sacrifices and invites readers, guests and followers to #PassOnTheGoodwill by sharing the AirAsia RedPass application link https://air.asia/GCs2R with friends and family in the services.

All eligible personnel can visit www.airasia.com and submit their details on https://air.asia/GCs2R, from 15th August until 21st August 2020 to apply for the AirAsia RedPass on a first come, first serve basis. Once the application is reviewed, the AirAsia RedPass and redemption details will be sent to applicants with valid identification. The AirAsia RedPass will be valid for redemption against any one-way flight on the AirAsia India domestic network for travel between 25 September and 31 December 2020. Reservations against the AirAsia RedPass are required at least 21 days prior to the date of departure.

Talking about the AirAsia RedPass for Armed Forces, Mr. Ankur Garg, Chief Commercial Officer, AirAsia India said “We value the selfless contributions of defence personnel made towards protecting the nation’s security. Along with their families, the armed forces have displayed immense patriotism to the nation’s needs and have been forthcoming in their support to fight disasters and calamities. We are a proud country and this pride is driven by the confidence and safety instilled by our armed forces. Saluting their efforts, AirAsia India, through this initiative, would like to express our gratitude and pay tribute to their noble commitment. Inspired by their true spirit to serve, it would be an honour to connect these revered guests to their families and make this a special journey for them.”   

 *Base Fare will be waived off under the RedPass Scheme, airport fees, charges and statutory taxes will be borne by the traveller.
