Spicejet Concessions for Indian Armed Forces
Like most of the airlines around the world, Spicejet also provides special privileges to its passengers belonging to the country’s armed forces. Some of the special benefits which Spicejet bestows on our armed forces are covered here.
- Maximum discount of 50% on base fare can be availed.
- This is not to be clubbed with any other promotion.
- If passenger wants to avail other offers, the 50% discount can be reduced to such an extent as to retain maximum discount at 50%.
- Offer is valid both for serving and retired defence and paramilitary personnel. Jammu and Kashmir police personnel are also allowed to avail of this offer.
Passenger needs to carry their Military Identification Cards for verification purposes. This is to be shown at the airport entry and at the time of check-in.
Spicejet reserves only limited number of seats for travel of military personnel and these are offered on first-come-first-serve basis. So, if you are not able to find any seat while booking as a military personnel, then it could be that the inventory has been exhausted. Therefore, you shall try booking the ticket for another flight or opt for the normal fares.
Free carriage of armed weapon and ammunition
Spicejet normally charges carriage of arms and ammunition in check-in baggage. It charges Rs 5000 for one fire-arm and not more than 50 live cartridges. However, for armed forces personnel, it allows carriage of arms and ammunition free of charge if they are moving under official orders from their concerned department on duty and the carriage of arm and ammunition has been authorised for travel.
