Air India reduces incentive scheme for travel agents, TAAI vehemently opposes it
Air India has decided to reduce the assured incentive from the current 1 per cent to 0.5 per cent for both the domestic and international sectors for the BSP agents in India for FY 2022-23.This comes into effect from today.
Reacting to the development, TAAI (Travel Agents Association of India) said that they are shocked to note that an airline like Air India has reduced the incentive to a mere 0.5 per cent with immediate effect. “On the contrary we were expecting an increase to a minimum of 3 per cent for the efforts undertaken by our member agents to promote, book and sell Air India inventory along with collection of total airfare and assure payments to the airline through IATA,” said Jyoti Mayal, President, TAAI.
TAAI also appealed to Air India to withdraw the circular immediately. “We would appeal to your good office to kindly withdraw the said communication with immediate effect and reinstate a minimum of 3 per cent incentive to the IATA accredited agents and members of TAAI,” said Mayal.
