The management of SpiceJet will extend ‘corporate package’ to members of the Andhra Chamber of Commerce and Industry, airline’s DGM-Sales (South India) S. Ramakrishna Reddy has said.
As part of a business development exercise, Mr. Reddy and Assistant Manager-Sales Sahshikanth Yakkarnall held discussions with the members of the ACCI here on Friday.
During the interaction, the ACCI members appealed to the SpiceJet officials to exempt them from the 30 per cent deduction in fare on cancellation of ticket. Responding to the appeal positively, the SpiceJet officials said they would extend them the ‘corporate package’.
The Chamber members also sought operation of more flights and connectivity to other cities from the Gannavaram airport, as Vijayawada was developing at a fast pace.
Chamber president Muthavarapu Murali Krishna urged Mr. Reddy to operate the Visakhapatnam-Chennai service via Vijayawada.
Later, speaking to newsmen, Mr. Reddy said eight departures were there from the Gannavaram airport to various destinations, and SpiceJet had six landings daily. The management recently arranged connectivity to Pune and Ahmedabad from Vijayawada, he added.
“As of now, we are providing connectivity to 15 cities from Vijayawada. Recently, SpiceJet introduced ‘corporate package’ for regular customers. The management will extend the package to ACCI members as well. Managements of Small and Medium Enterprises can also avail themselves of the facility,” he said.
“Under the package, passengers will get 100 per cent fare reimbursement on cancellation of ticket, round-the-clock ticket booking and cancellation facility, and free meal.”
SpiceJet was also providing free luggage carrying facility for regular passengers (up to 46 kg) travelling by flights having international connectivity, Mr. Reddy said.
Chamber secretary Prasad R.K. Chukkapalli was present.
