Air India celebrated the day with fervour and enthusiasm, with lots of exciting initiatives planned for passengers. Passengers on 10 select domestic metro flights were treated to an exclusive, personalized inflight experience with a chef on board who interacted with them and also, assisted cabin crew in the service.
On the other hand, the passengers on board international flights in the First and Executive class were treated to delectable chocolates.
To commemorate the occasion, designer display cards at the metro airports were placed on check in counters and personnel adorned Air India Star Alliance badges at the airports.
Air India became the first Indian carrier to be inducted into Star Alliance network, the world’s first truly global airline alliance.
