Air India Website Crashes on Day 1 of Tickets-for-Rs.100 Offer
New Delhi: It's 'Air India Day' today but national carrier's site has crashed.This after they offered discounted tickets for Rs. 100 for a limited period.

Air India had announced it would celebrate August 27 as 'Air India Day' to mark its merger with Indian Airlines in 2007 as one entity.

To mark the occasion, the carrier launched 'Air India Offer' - a scheme offering tickets for Rs. 100 apart from all applicable taxes.

The sale of these tickets would be made only through the airline's website for five days from August 27 to 31 for travel during the period August 27 to September 30 only, an official spokesperson had said on Tuesday.


But on the first day of the scheme the site seems to have crashed due to unprecedented traffic.
