Easy Trip Planners Limited (“EaseMyTrip”) one of the key online travel agencies in India has come forward to fight against the deadly covid-19 virus which is spreading across the country and effecting the health of thousands of Indians.
Last week, Prime Minister Modi had announced PM CARES Fund and has urged people from all walks of life to donate to India’s war against COVID-19.
EaseMyTrip (EMT) is giving opportunity to lakhs of its customers to participate & donate in the PM’s relief fund while booking air tickets in advance for the time period between May 2020 & January 2021 on company’s website, mobile site, android & iOS app. EMT has taken this initiative to strengthen the Prime Minister’s vision towards fighting the pandemic of Covid-19 together.
The company has launched an optional promo-code: PMCARES, which customers can select while booking next air-ticket (of any date, airlines or sector). Once selected EaseMyTrip will donate entire convenience-fees (on average it’s Rs 618 per booking) along with additional Rs 100 to PM Cares Fund.
Presently, due to the outbreak of coronavirus and suspension of flights in the country, flight ticket prices are at an all-time low and the company is getting decent amount of footfalls on its website for air ticket bookings from May 2020 onwards.
Speaking on the launch of this unique scheme, Mr Rikant Pitti, Co-founder, said, “As a responsible corporate we are very much concerned about the outbreak of CoronaVirus Pandemic in India and across the world. We wholeheartedly stand with the country in its fight against this virus outbreak and have launched the scheme for over Lakhs of customers to come forward and participate with us in this fight against Covid19 by donating towards the PM CARES Fund. As of now, we are getting a decent response from our customers who are presently booking advance air tickets from our website and we are confident that we will be able to donate substantial amount to PM CARES Fund.”
