ProTip: Book IndiGo Meals at 50% off

While I am not a frequent flyer of IndiGo, I do appreciate their cold meals a lot. They are pretty nice, and I’ve always appreciated their packaging which is very cool and funky.

Now, eating on planes is more like a pass time I guess, however, it is an important part of the experience still since commercial aviation started from full-service carriers and no-frill carriers are the current generation. I usually find the IndiGo meals pricy, but there is a way to save 50% off on those meals, straight up. Use the IndiGo Mobile App.

I recently booked up my mother for an IndiGo flight, and while I am more than certain she will be in time at the airport to be able to visit the lounge for a bit (using the Priority Pass), I wanted to ensure she’d not have to worry about a dinnertime meal if that was not the case. I also wanted to ensure she had a choice on the plane.

So I popped up her reservation on the IndiGo app, and quickly managed to add a meal combo (a drink and a cold meal) at 50% off.

This is something that has been around for a while, and if you’re a frequent IndiGo traveller, you should know about to ensure you get your fill on the plane first, and cheaper than everyone else!
