Disability activist hits out at Air India

A Jalandhar-based disability activist has accused Air India of asking for charges for carrying a wheelchair on board a flight from Mumbai to Delhi.
Vivek Joshi (38), who was presented the President’s Award in 2016, was asked by the staff at the airport to pay Rs 1,180 for the wheelchair, which would take him inside the airport, and an additional Rs 400-500 as mandatory packaging charges for taking his wheelchair on board. The facility is free at all airports, he added.
