Jio Offers Discounts on AirAsia Flight Bookings and International Calls

Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio has intensified the competition in the telecom sector since its launch. Post the announcement of its low data rates, the telecom company is now offering attractive discounts to all its users.

AirAsia offer for Jio users

Reliance Jio subscribers enjoy a 15 percent discount on AirAsia domestic and international flight bookings. Jio users may avail of the benefits using the AirAsia app. The offer is valid from 17th April 2017 up to 30th April 2017. Users may book the tickets for the travel period, 20th June 2017 to 30th September 2017. Over 72 million active Jio users would enjoy the benefits of this offer.

AirAsia stated that the discount is applicable to flights which are run by its India, Thailand, and other main units. However, it is not applicable to its Indonesia and Philippines units.

International calling offer 

Reliance Jio is offering international calls at a price as low as INR 3 per minute. Jio users may avail of this offer by opting for the ‘rate-cutter plan’, which is priced at INR 501.

It allows Jio users to make calls at INR 3 per minute to the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Taiwan, Brazil, Switzerland, Poland, Italy, Sweden, Austria, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Belgium, French Guinea, Malta, Luxembourg, Morocco, Andorra, Mongolia, Portugal, Romania, and Puerto Rico. Besides, the company is also offering a rate of INR 4.8 per minute for international calls to Pakistan, Argentina, South Korea, Japan, France, Israel, and Denmark.

Other Reliance Jio offers

Reliance Jio gives high data speeds to its customers at affordable prices. The company has received over 100 million customers since its launch in September 2016. It has retained over 70 percent of its users after making the services paid, this year.

In February 2017, Chairman Mukesh Ambani announced the Jio Prime subscription plan. Jio Prime members enjoy added benefits on regular plans. The Jio Prime subscription was priced at INR 99.

Under the Jio Prime membership, the company offers unlimited data, unlimited local and national voice calling, free SMS services, free national roaming, and free access to Jio apps.

Recently, the company announced the ‘Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan’ offer. Under this, Reliance Jio is giving unlimited data to its users for 84 days on their first recharge. At INR 309, Jio Prime members get unlimited data with a usage cap of 1 GB per day. At INR 509, Jio Prime users get unlimited data with a usage cap of 2 GB per day. Non-prime members will also be able to access these offers by paying INR 99 extra that is at INR 408 and INR 608 respectively.

Heavy discounts by Reliance Jio have been a major concern for the incumbent players. As per a report from Credit Lyonnais Securities Asia (CLSA), revenue of Indian telecom companies has decreased for the first time since 2009 because of the success of Reliance Jio.

Summary

Reliance Jio offers a 15 percent discount on AirAisa domestic and international flight bookings to its users. Besides, the company is also offering international calls starting from INR 3 per minute.
