Indians welcome Air India reinstating discounts on repatriation of bodies from UAE

Dubai: Air India on Sunday reinstated discounts on the repatriation of dead bodies from the UAE to India, a move welcomed by Indians who had vehemently protested against the recent cancellation of the discounts.
Senior officials told Gulf News that Air India had revoked its decision to cancel the 50 per cent discount on the cargo fare for transporting human remains from the UAE, and to stop the free repatriation of mortal remains of distressed Indians.

The decision that had resulted in the doubling of cargo fares for sending mortal remains of the Indian expats in the national carrier and its low-cost wing Air India Express from September 19 has been scrapped with immediate effect, officials said.
Air India’s UAE officials confirmed that the airline has decided to withdraw the decision that had been met with widespread protest from Indian community members, social workers and community organisations.
