The Union Minister of Civil Aviation and Commerce & Industry, Suresh Prabhu, and Minister of State for Civil Aviation, Jayant Sinha launched the upgraded version of AirSewa 2.0 web portal and mobile app in New Delhi today.
Speaking on this occasion the Civil Aviation Minister said that a need was felt for development of an upgraded version of AirSewa to provide a superior user experience with enhanced functionalities. Major improvements include features such as secure sign-up and log-in with social media, chatbot for travellers support, improved grievance management including social media grievances, real-time flight status and details flight schedule. The upgrade and improved version of AirSewa operate through an interactive web portal as well as through a mobile app for both Android and iOS platforms and will offer passengers a convenient and hassle-free air travel experience. The web portal and application will help to capture air travellers' feedback for policy interventions.
The Minister of State for Civil Aviation, Jayant Sinha, said that today five crore passengers are travelling every year and will grow exponentially in the near future. There was an urgent need of upgradation of AirSewa and systemic intervention in improving customer services.
Air passengers face issues like flight delays, the problem in refunds, long queues, inadequate facilities at airports and complaints of lost baggage. The Ministry of Civil Aviation launched AirSewa web portal and mobile app in November 2016 to address this need. The AirSewa 1.0 was received well, with around 30,000 app downloads and around 75,000 web portal hits since its launch. It has helped a significant number of air passengers to get their concerns resolved with 92 % closure rate for grievance solutions. In addition to grievance redressal, AirSewa also provides real-time flight status and flight schedules.
Suresh Prabhu and Jayant Sinha also gave away the champion award to Chennai airport which saw hundred per cent timely closure of grievances in one year. Secretary of Civil Aviation, Dr.Guru prasad Mohapatra and other officials of the Ministry of Civil Aviation were present on this occasion.
