Good news for women travelling from SpiceJet, as the airline has announced a basket full of offers to female passengers
Good news for women travelling from SpiceJet, as the airline has announced a basket full of offers to female passengers, including free upgrades, exclusive seating arrangements and freebies, to mark International Women’s Day (IWD), celebrated every year on March 8. The budget carrier on Monday announced that all the women travelling alone on the day will get free upgrade to SpiceMAX, which facilitate the flyer with more legroom and priority check-in at dedicated counters at major airports. The airline will also be offering complimentary hot beverages and cookies, among other freebies to women passengers on its Boeing 737 flights.
IWD originally called International Working Women’s Day, is celebrated to show respect, appreciation and love towards women for their economic, political and social achievements. Unlikely to limit the celebration to just one day, the airline has revamped its seating arrangements for such women travellers. From March 8, the airline will reserve its 4th row exclusively for women, Spicejet said in a statement. These special schemes will be offered on all Spicejet flights across the network, the airline added. In case of a full flight, the aisle and middle seats will be assigned to women on a first-come, first-served basis.
