Bharti Airtel has announced multiple new prepaid and postpaid plans (not regular ones) that international travellers will be able to leverage to call, text and browse the internet when they are travelling outside India. International travel has seen a massive surge as the scare of the pandemic subsided, and due to events such as FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, ICC T20 World Cup, concerts and more, consumers are travelling in higher numbers. To ensure that its customers get a seamless experience while travelling outside India, Airtel has announced the 'Airtel World Pass'. The company said that through the new IR (international roaming) packs under the World Pass branding, users would be able to connect with mobile network services in over 184 countries with a single pack.
Airtel said, "The World Pass revolutionises the experience for all international travel because it works seamlessly across 184 countries. So even if you are en-route at an Airport or travelling to two or more countries, one pack now covers all your roaming needs."
This is definitely a new standard for the telecom industry as the customers of the telco now don't need to worry about recharging with different packs in case they are travelling to different nations in a single trip.
