The Pak Banker - - COMPANIES/BOSS -

MUM­BAI: Pro­mo­tions are pour­ing in from air­lines and now, it's the turn of Vis­tara run by Tata SIA Air­lines Ltd. The air­line will present all its busi­ness class pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling from 12 Au­gust to 30 Septem­ber, a com­pli­men­tary pre­mium econ­omy class ticket on its net­work. This is to celebrate the air­line's 5,00,000th cus­tomer this month.

"As our oper­a­tions started in Jan­uary this year, we are very proud to be reach­ing this spe­cial mile­stone so soon af­ter the launch. As the month rolls on, spe­cial of­fers and ini­tia­tives will be an­nounced as a ges­ture of grat­i­tude to Vis­tara's cus­tomers," Vis­tara said on its web­site. The voucher can be re­deemed for travel from 12 Au­gust 2015 to 15 Oc­to­ber 2015, sub­ject to avail­abil­ity of seats, and for book­ings made at least 48 hours in ad­vance, the air­line said. Vis­tara's of­fer is only till 15 Oc­to­ber for fly­ing as the De­cem­ber quar­ter is con­sid­ered the peak sea­son for do­mes­tic air­lines be­cause of fes­ti­vals and hol­i­days fall­ing in the pe­riod.

Vis­tara now of­fers 243 weekly fre­quen­cies con­nect­ing 10 des­ti­na­tions. Tata SIA Air­lines, known by the brand name Vis­tara, is a joint ven­ture be­tween Tata Sons Ltd and Sin­ga­pore Air­lines Ltd (SIA) with Tata Sons hold­ing the ma­jor­ity stake of 51% in the com­pany and SIA hold­ing the rest. Sep­a­rately, AirAsia In­dia, a low fare air­line pro­moted by Tata Sons and AirAsia Group Bhd has of­fered all-in­clu­sive fares from Rs.990 for a one-way ticket to celebrate car­ry­ing its 1 mil­lion pas­sen­gers. AirAsia In­dia's book­ing pe­riod for this pro­mo­tion is from 10-16 Au­gust 2015, with the travel pe­riod from 15 Fe­bru­ary 2016 to 16 Au­gust 2016.
