"The tie-up is a kind of joint promotion and benefits both parties," an Air India official told PTI here.

Under the special offer, if a passenger books a return ticket to any AI online point in the USA, he would be entitled to two complimentary domestic tickets on Air India and Indian (erstwhile Indian Airlines) flights in the same class, the official said.

A 50 per cent discount on the second ticket to the same destination and in the same class/fare could also be availed in place of two domestic tickets.

Similarly, a passenger would get one complimentary domestic ticket or a 50 per cent discount on the second ticket if he buys a return ticket to any AI online point in UK/Europe/Japan/China/HongKong/Africa, the official said.

A passenger booking with Air India two return tickets to any of its online points in the Gulf/Singapore/Bangkok/Kuala Lumpur/Male will also be offered two complimentary tickets in the same class on select domestic sectors (distance of less than 300 miles one-way).

One complimentary ticket in the same class on any domestic sector operated by Air India could also be availed in place of two complimentary tickets on select domestic sectors, he said.

However, the discount would be applicable on the basic fare component only, the official said, adding that, "the scheme is applicable for travel on Air India flights only and not on code-share flights and the complimentary ticket too will be for journey on AI/IC (Air India and Indian) flights only."
