Keeping in mind additional safety of passengers, IndiGo has introduced ‘6E double seat’ booking scheme, allowing customers to book two seats for a single passenger.
The double seat can be purchased from goindigo.in only, at time of making the original booking. It is not available through travel portals, airline call centre, airport counters or after making the original single-seat booking.
The seat selection charges under the scheme will be applicable for both seats and it will be a mandatory selection requirement at the time of booking.
“The charges for the extra seat will be effectively up to 25% lower than the original booking cost,” the airline said in a statement. “This offer is effective travel starting July 24, 2020,”
The airline also said that extra baggage won’t be allowed with the extra seat. “Regular change and cancellation charges based on the type of fare purchased will be applicable on the extra seat,” the statement read. “The extra seat booking will not be entitled to additional baggage allowance for customers.”
IndiGo’s Chief Strategy & Revenue Officer Sanjay Kumar said, “Even though air travel is the safest mode of travel at this point, we understand the customers’ emotional need for safety. We had been receiving such requests and are happy to introduce the option to book two seats for a single passenger to ensure additional safety. 6E double seat will provide a stress-free flying experience to our customers. We are constantly working towards measures and services to strengthen air travel as the safest choice for travelers. We are confident that this option will enhance passenger comfort and trust, augmenting the overall demand for air travel”.
