NEW DELHI: Air India on Sunday said that it would not charge any ticket cancellation or rescheduling fee for travel to and from Kashmir, which has been rocked by violence.
Air India has decided to waive cancellation and no-show charges from the customers who had booked their flights to or from Srinagar due to the prevalent situation in Kashmir, an Air India spokesperson said here.
The spokesperson also said that the airline will also not charge any amount for the rescheduling of pre-booked flights.
The relaxed norms would be applicable for both domestic and international flights to and from Srinagar on tickets booked before July 9 for travel up to July 11.
At present, all domestic airlines charge a heavy fee of up to Rs 2,000 from fliers for a ticket cancellation and rescheduling.
Meanwhile, Jet Airways has also announced that it would re-book the tickets of its customers without any charges due to the current situation in the valley.
“Due to the current unrest situation prevailing in Srinagar, we have been informed by DGCA to allow guests to rebook their tickets without charges,” Jet Airways spokesperson said.
18 people have been killed and 200 injured in clashes between protesters and security personnel following the killing of Hizb militant Burhan Wani in an encounter on Friday.
