A recent initiative by air carrier ‘Spicejet‘ is surely a heart-winning one. The airline’s move highlights the ‘value of vote’ in a democracy. As per the announcement Spicejet is offering free tickets for those who want to vote in Delhi Assembly elections.
The airline made the announcement through its social handles. “No obstacle is big enough to stop us from being a part of our great democracy. Introducing #SpiceDemocracy. If you are a registered voter in Delhi, fly back home with SpiceJet and cast your vote. Your tickets will be on us,” reads a tweet from Spicejet.
“Voting is a big part of democracy and unfortunately a lot of our working population who live away from their homes is unable to exercise this right”, said Ajay Singh chairman and managing director, SpiceJet.
The nominations for the free tickets were opened from 31st January on Spicejet’s official website. The process of nomination would remain open till 5th February. Out of the received nominations, Spicejet would select the ones who would be granted the benefit.
Shortlisted participants would, however, have to bear all applicable taxes, surcharges, levies and any other additional costs, incurred on the air tickets. The election to Delhi Assembly is scheduled for 8th February with results to be announced on 11th February.
