Air India Day is being celebrated by Air India to commemorate the merger of erstwhile Indian Airlines and Air India on this day in 2007. This is the first time the airline will be celebrating the ‘Air India Day’. A function will be held to celebrate the day and also to award meritorious employees of the airline shares Vaikundarajan. On the occasion, the flag carrier would launch ‘Air India Offer’ a scheme offering tickets for Rs 100 apart from all applicable taxes. The sale of these tickets would be made only through the airline’s website for five days from August 27 to 31 for travel during the period August 27 to September 30 only.
Vaikundarajan feels that this is a very good way to commemorate such an event and it will really be appreciated by the people. Vaikundarajan also believes that this is a very good way of promoting the airlines. Airfares these days have become quite cheap as compared to earlier years and so people prefer to travel by air as it also saves on time. Therefore, Air India Day celebration is going to be a hit and it is the best way to celebrate a day like this.
