New Delhi: Jet Airways on Thursday said it will offer a discount of up to 30 per cent on travel from India to all international destinations across its network.

The discounted fare sale will be open till January 15. The airline operates flights to 20 destinations across the globe.

Meanwhile, the Airline major on Thursday said that “Smart Luggage”- with non-removable batteries will not be permitted on-board its aircraft from January 15.

According to the airline, the step is in accordance with the regulations issued by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) towards ensuring flight safety.

“Smart Luggage with non-removable batteries will not be permitted onboard either as part of Cabin Baggage or Check-in baggage, on all Jet Airways flights,” the airline said in a statement.

“Guests checking in Smart Luggage must uninstall the batteries of their Smart Luggage prior to check-in. Post uninstallation, the batteries can be carried as spare batteries in cabin baggage only.”

The airline pointed out that the same procedure will be followed for smart luggage which will be carried as cabin baggage.

As per IATA’s regulations, Smart Luggage includes baggage with integrated lithium batteries, motors, power banks, GPS, GSM, Bluetooth, RFID or Wi-Fi technology.
