As India celebrates its 75th year of Independence, fund crunched airlines have been asked to put ‘India@75 stickers’ on their aircraft to commemorate the year. The airlines have also been asked to conduct quizzes on board for children and award the winners.
“Airlines have been asked, as part of the ‘Passenger First’ campaign planned in September, to put India@75 stickers as well as conduct an in-flight puzzle/quiz on the same theme,” said a government source, who did not wish to be identified. “Winners to get coupons/India@75 shirt pins/artefacts. Airlines have to tweet the image of winners from their social media handles and tag MoCA (ministry of civil aviation).”
This is not the first time airlines will celebrate an event of national importance with stickers. In 2019, national carrier Air India celebrated Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th birth anniversary by painting his portrait along with a message that read – 150 years of celebrating the Mahatma.
