Air India Express Introduces New Fare Families With Awesome XPress Biz

Air India Express, Air India’s low-cost carrier, has introduced a new fare family, including a new XPress Biz fare option. The airline now offers a full range of products and services onboard. Whether you travel light or travel for business, you’ll now find a ticket tier ideally suited to your needs.

The New Air India Express Fare Family Consists Of Four Categories

  • Xpress Lite: This option allows cabin baggage only, a 7kg suitcase, and a 3kg hand luggage item.
  • Xpress Value: Allowing 15 kg check-in baggage on domestic and 20kg on international flights.
  • Xpress Flex: This fare has the same check-in baggage allowance as Xpress value fares. Additionally, tickets are eligible for unlimited changes with no change fees.
  • Xpress Biz: This fare allows 25kg of check-in baggage on domestic and 40 kg on international flights. Passengers also enjoy business class seating onboard, complimentary Gourmair meals, and priority services.

The XPress Biz cabin section of the 737-8 is in a 2-2 configuration with no middle seats to accommodate the wider armchair-style seats. It is close to a classic U.S. domestic first-class cabin, with four to eight seats on each aircraft. Passengers opting for Xpress Biz can stretch out with a seat pitch of up to 58 inches.

The rationale for introducing the class is practicality. Eager to expand and modernize its fleet, parent company Air India has placed orders for 190 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. Air India Express is expanding its fleet, taking nearly four new aircraft monthly. The 15 737-8 aircraft Air India Express received were produced but not delivered to Chinese carriers who had specified a business section at the front. China has only recently approved the return of the 737 MAX. Air India designed a fare strategy to maximize customer appeal as the seats were already there.

Flight Chic Take: XPress Biz is smart and should help the airline boost revenue, positioning it as a hybrid low-cost carrier.
