Air India, in collaboration with Tourism Australia will offer exciting fares to travel enthusiasts for the upcoming holiday season. The special offer, starting from INR 62,000, will be promoted on varied print, digital and out of home platforms and will run from January 15-February 14, 2016 for travel from February 17-September 30, 2016, subject to applicable terms and conditions. The daily, non-stop service operated by a Dreamliner Boeing 787 between New Delhi and the Australian cities of Sydney and Melbourne, provides a boost to the aviation capacity between India and Australia by up to 93,400 seats (on an annualised basis).
For the year 2015, Air India recorded a 12 per cent market share for air traffic from India into Australia. Nishant Kashikar, Country Manager, India and Gulf, Tourism Australia, said “Air India’s direct flights into Australia have given tourism from India a huge boost, and our increasing arrivals from the country are a testimony to the fact. Seamless connectivity is critical to securing a share of the rising diaspora of Indian overseas travellers. Air India is one of our key airline partners, and has been a driver for bringing in additional capacity to Australia.
With this limited period offer we aim to significantly boost arrivals into Australia during the upcoming holiday season. We want to give Indian travellers greater choices to plan their holiday in advance and avail the exciting offer.”
