Female Passengers Can Now Choose A Seat Next To Another Female Traveller On Indigo Flights

Great news for solo female flyers! IndiGo, India’s prominent airline, has launched a fantastic new feature during web check-in. Now, women passengers can see which seats are pre-booked by other female flyers, according to a report in the Times of India. This innovative feature empowers women to choose a seat next to another female traveller on Indigo flights, potentially enhancing their sense of safety and comfort.

This initiative aligns perfectly with IndiGo’s commitment to girl power. They recognise the importance of creating a more comfortable and secure travel experience for women flying solo.  Imagine the ease of selecting a seat knowing you might be next to another woman, especially for night flights or journeys with long layovers.

Of course, choosing a seat beside another woman is entirely optional. Passengers can still pick their preferred spot based on legroom, proximity to the window, or any other factor. However, the added information provides women with more control over their in-flight experience.

It’s important to note that this feature is currently in pilot mode, meaning IndiGo is testing its effectiveness before potentially making it a permanent feature. The airline has specifically tailored it to Passenger Name Records (PNRs) with women travellers, including those flying solo and those booked as part of families. This ensures the feature caters to a wider range of female passengers seeking a sense of security.

This exciting development comes alongside IndiGo’s recent efforts to address overbooking issues. The airline acknowledges these concerns and is dedicated to continually improving the travel experience for all passengers.
