Airtel to offer free Incoming calls on International Roaming

By September 28th, 2016 AT 12:15 PM

Airtel, today announced the launch of its new International Roaming (IR) packs that redefine the value proposition for customers traveling abroad. With the new IR packs, customers will have the convenience of carrying their India mobile number wherever they go and stay connected 24×7 without having to worry about high call and data charges. The packs will be available to both postpaid and prepaid customers.


Airtel’s new IR packs offer free incoming calls, free texts to India and ample data benefits along with free India calling minutes across all popular destinations. Now customers do not have to think twice before taking calls or calling their loved ones back home from their Airtel mobile when traveling overseas. Charges for calls to India and local in-country calls have been reduced to as low as Rs. 3/min across popular destinations.

Airtel also announced that post the exhaustion of pack data benefits, international roaming data will now be charged at just Rs. 3/MB, a reduction of 99% from Rs. 650/MB, so that customers can enjoy uninterrupted data usage without having to worry about bill charges. Customers can continue accessing their emails, social media, and websites on the go in a secure manner without having to wait for public wi-fi or free access.

The IR packs, which are available for all popular global destinations, come with validity of one day and 30 days, giving customers greater flexibility to plan their communication budgets when traveling overseas.

Provide national roaming free of cost first. Then talk about international roaming.


Don’t be a free loader. Use our Airtel network. We will provide you premium service.


The Airtel always trying to mint money at domestic and showing all loyalty to overseas customers.
National roaming is not feasible by Airtel but it is okay for overseas customers. Shameless act.
