New Delhi (EMS). Tata has been continuously making changes since purchasing Air India from the central government. The company has now talked about providing a new facility for women passengers traveling alone. The airline has said in the instructions that women traveling alone will get the opportunity to change their seats even after reaching the flight. Such female passengers can be given window or aisle seats.
On behalf of the company, it has been said that we keep the convenience and safety of our passengers paramount. For this reason, the airline has started providing the facility to choose gender sensitive seat options. In the circular issued by the company on October 3, it has been said that now the female passenger will be given the opportunity to choose her seat option even after reaching the flight. This step is being taken to avoid any dispute that may arise between male and female passengers during the journey.
Air India has said that for this, cabin crew members will be given complete training and women traveling alone will have to request other passengers to get window or aisle seats. If a woman traveling alone has a seat in the middle and there are seats for male passengers on either side of her, then such a woman passenger can be offered a window or side seat. For this purpose, cabin crew will request male passengers to change their seats. If a woman is traveling with a small child, then she can also be given the option to change her seat.
Air India has said that if a child is traveling alone, then the middle seat can be offered. After this, the child will be offered a middle seat instead of window or aisle and he will also have the opportunity to change his seat even after reaching the flight. This step is being taken to avoid any dispute between male and female passengers. Air India says that it has received hundreds of such complaints where women traveling alone have faced inconvenience if their seats are in the middle. After this, the airline has given the option to change the seat considering it gender sensitive.
