The Cochin International Airport Limited (CIAL) here and Air India Express Ltd on Tuesday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for exploring and implementing a slew of promotional campaigns, programmes and schemes for passengers.
The MoU was signed by CIAL Managing Director S Suhas IAS and Chief Executive Officer of Air India Express Aloke Singh at an event held in Kochi.
As part of the agreement, both the companies are launching an all-new promotional scheme for the passengers. The passengers traveling on Air India Express can avail 15 per cent to 20 per cent off while shopping from the Cochin Duty Free shop at the international departure terminal.
"In addition to this, passengers traveling on any airline will stand a chance to win free round trip tickets through a lucky draw if they are purchasing from Cochin Duty Free," CIAL said in a release.
Addressing the gathering, Suhas said the signing of the MoU sets a significant milestone for closer collaboration and long-term association between CIAL and Air India Express Limited.
"Partnerships between institutions are built on shared values. CIAL and Air India Express indeed share common values," he said, adding that Air India Express identifies CIAL as one of its primary hubs.
"Air India Express is the single largest international airline operator from CIAL in terms of number of flights," Suhas said.
Meanwhile Singh said with the MoU, Air India Express is looking forward to engaging with its customers more.
"We hold our relationship with CIAL very dear. CIAL is a unique airport, unique in its mode of operations, green initiatives and architecture. We are really proud of the relationship we have with the airport," Singh said.
Being the largest international airline operating in Kerala, Air India Express is looking forward to leveraging the tremendous tourism potential offered by the state once the situation comes back to normal.
