IATA initiative: Choice of preferred seats, meals on ticket booking sites soon

New Delhi: With the unbundling of airline services like preferred seats, meals and baggage in India, IATA has started a pilot project to display all such facilities on ticket booking sites to allow passengers to choose what they want.
Besides the services for which Indian carriers levy charges apart from the air ticket price, several international airlines are now selling services like lounge access, fast- track immigration clearance, in-flight entertainment and Wifi access.
Keeping this in mind, global airlines' body International Air Transport Association (IATA) has launched a pilot project with some global carriers to update their booking sites and those of their travel agents to provide passengers the choice to buy any product offered.
