-- Air Akanksha, a global travel company, has launched an online travel portal www.airakanksha.com.
Powered by Expedia, the world’s largest travel network, Air Akanksha offers competitive pricing and value deals for flights, hotels cars and vacation packages across the world.
The company operates with a strong social commitment and a philanthropic business model, with a mission to spread smiles amongst orphans. When customers book their travel through Air Akanksha, a part of the revenue goes towards funding education for orphaned children. Twenty five per cent of Air Akanksha’s revenue is set aside for contribution to this social cause. Organizations for donations are chosen through a stringent selection process to ensure that the money reaches the right people and is utilized appropriately. This unique business model with a strong social commitment makes Air Akanksha the first of its kind.
According to Air Akanksha’s brand manager, Shruti Malhotra, “The Akanksha movement continues to take small steps forward in achievements. Our affiliation with Expedia will help customers get the best deals along with a wide range of travel options. While customers get value deals, we make money, and somewhere in the world an orphan’s education gets paid for.”
On its website, Air Akanksha will regularly publish its contributions to social initiatives. Besides ensuring transparency, accountability, ethical monitoring and unbiased reporting, this will also help customers track how their small contribution helps make a big difference to lives of the underprivileged.
Air Akanksha’s long term plans include commencement of air travel and charter operations with its own fleet of private, state of the art, Air Akanksha Jets and Airliners. When airborne, Air Akanksha plans to be one of the finest experiences in air travel.
