Vistara has announced a special discount for both serving, retired armed forces personnel, and their family members. They, or their family members, will get up to 10 percent discount on base fare and extra baggage allowance when they book tickets directly through Vistara website or mobile app, the airline said. "This concessional fare will also be extended to the active Jammu and Kashmir police personnel as an ode to their exemplary services," Vistara said on its website.
The passengers who book under this discount will also enjoy an additional 5 kg check-in baggage on their travel. The special fare is available for three family members of the armed forces personnel travelling with them on the same PNR. The passengers can be dependent parents, spouse and children between two years and 26 years of age.
The airline said this offer is applicable for direct flights and for travel in India only. This discount, however, will not be applicable for bookings made under premium economy and business class seats. The official IDs for armed forces, J&K police personnel and the dependent cards of family members are mandatory to avail the offer. The booking must be made via Vistara website airvistara.com or through the mobile app only, Vistara said on its website.

If the flight is available at a lower fare than originally booked flight, then this fee will be waived off for Club Vistara Platinum members.
