NEW DELHI:  Air India issued a circular to allow domestic passengers having valid tickets for travel between March 15 and August 24, but flights were cancelled due to Covid-19 induced lockdown, to transfer them in other names.

It said, “The value of the existing ticket will be locked, and passengers will be allowed to get the ticket reissued for a new passenger nominated by him/her, allowing him freedom from the limitation of self-travel only for a future date.”

Listing out the rules for the “name change” facility, the airlines said, “It will only be allowed for domestic travel tickets issued in India."

The AI  employees associations have opposed to the decision.
