ALL INDIA MEDIA COVERAGE OF VOLUNTARY SHUTTERS DOWN ON 7TH MAY, 2013       Published on : Jun 03 2013
 

Air Travel Agents in India keep shutters down


Around 2,600 travel agents across the nation will shut shop for a day tomorrow to demand a five per cent commission from airlines on the sale of tickets. "We want a minimum commission of five per cent on the total airfare, which includes taxes. Inflation affects us also, just like them. We should look at periodic increment, not decrease in commissions," said Rajesh Rateria, Managing Director, Cirrus Travels. Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) will hold a press conference on the issue in Mumbai and Delhi today.

Travel agents said that they want parity in airfares across the channel. "Airlines give agents one fare but keep it lower on their own websites. This affects our business negatively. Hence, we want the fare to be the same across all channels," a travel agent was quoted as saying in a report in The Times of India. Agents also want the freedom to pay airlines on a fortnightly basis. Currently, the payment is made every week. This norm had been introduced by airlines recently.

Also, travel agents will protest against lack of transparency in airfares. “We demand transparency in airfares by airlines. We also want the government to regulate airfares so that consumers are not exploited,” Iqbal Mulla, President, TAAI, was quoted as saying in a PTI report.

Besides, the Association has demanded that airlines should not be allowed to charge separately for various services like serving tea, sandwich, insurance, preferred seat and change of dates, and that these services should be included in the ticket price. The Ministry of Civil Aviation, Government of India had last week said that it would allow airlines to unbundle charges for different services such as preferential seating, meals, snacks, drinks (except drinking water) and baggage.

Travel agents demand 5% commission from airlines


MUMBAI: On May 7, around 2,600 travel agents across the nation will shut shop for a day. The reason is to demand a five percent commission from airlines on the sale of tickets. Travel agents have been fighting to get commission for the last five ti seven years. Some airlines have withdrawn the commission fully, other pay just a meagre one percent.


“We want a minimum commission of 5% on the total air-fare which includes taxes. Inflation affects us also, just like them. We should look at periodic increment, not decrease in commissions,” said Rajesh Rateria, managing director, Cirrus travels.


Travel agents said that they want a parity in air-fares across the channel. “Airlines give agents one fare but keep it lower on their own websites. This affects our business negatively. Hence, we want the fare to be the same across all channels,” said a travel agent.


Agents also want the freedom to pay the airlines on a fortnightly basis. Currently, the payment is made every week. This norm had been introduced by airlines recently.


Agents said that they will rake up other issues which affect passengers. Agents will also demand a consolidated fare, which includes all services and facilities provided to the passengers.

Travel agents to strike work today


 By HT correspondent | Hindustan Times – Tue 7 May, 2013


•          


India, May 7 -- Passengers may face difficulties in booking tickets on Tuesday as travel agents have called for 'no ticketing day' as a protest against nonpayment of commission to them by the airlines.


Claiming that over 90% air travellers book tickets either through a travel agent or a travel website, the Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI) said they will not book tickets on Tuesday.


"At one point of time, we used to get 9% commission which has come down to 1% and in some case it is zero. Our demands are not being accepted by the airlines in India and that is why we have called for a nationwide shutter down," Rajji Rai of TAAI said. Travellers are likely to suffer with the move as many of them are dependent on the agents to book tickets.


Besides, the association has also demanded that the airlines should not be allowed to charge separately for various services like serving tea, food, insurance, preferred seat, change of dates among others. They demanded all these services to be included in the ticket price.


"We are the experts, who do everything from giving the best deal to arranging visa, travel insurance and even foreign exchange. We also play the role of a consultant to the corporate world for cost-effective solutions. This is a silent protest and we will not force anyone to join it. But to save the trade, it is important to tell the authority that without us, the aviation industry will lose the business," Rai added.


"TAAI may convert this one day shutter down to indefinite, if the demands are not met," Iqbal Mulla, president of TAAI said.
