Airtel Announces Free Incoming Calls on International Roaming

Airtel has launched today its new International Roaming (IR) packs for 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. 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. The IR packs, which are available for all popular global destinations, come with validity of one day and 30 days.

One day IR pack: The one day pack is designed for short/quick international trips and for appx. $10 customers can stay connected through their travel. This pack is particularly useful for business travelers who may be traveling to multiple destinations for very short durations.

30 days IR pack: The 30 days pack offers connectivity through long duration trips for appx. $75 and is loaded with data and India calling benefits.

10 days IR pack: Airtel plans to launch a $45 medium duration pack with 10 days validity by middle of October 2016.
