Airline major Jet Airways on Thursday said that it will introduce a new flexible fare structure — “Fare Choices” — which would allow passengers more choice in terms of prices and services.
According to the airline major, the new fare structure will be effective from August 17 and will include a total of eight new “Fare Choices” across economy and premiere classes, allowing guests to customise their bookings to their individual needs.
“The new fare structure being introduced by Jet Airways will offer distinct features in each category as well as greater choice to our guests. Ultimately, this is about providing choice,” said Gaurang Shetty, Wholetime Director, Jet Airways.
“The introduction of ‘Fare Choices’ is in line with our ‘Guest First’ philosophy to create an exceptional experience for our guests,” he added.
Besides, the passenger carrier will join a select group of airlines worldwide which offer branded fare structure, once the new scheme is implemented.
The airline elaborated that “Fare Choices” differ in flexibility and provides benefits that can be customised which otherwise need to be purchased separately.
“Some guests, for instance, may want flexibility in changing travel dates, others might want to accrue more JetPrivilege miles. ‘Fare Choices’ will give them the ability to customise their travel experience according to their needs,” the airline said in a statement.
“The various fare categories are differentiated based on the changeability and refundability of a ticket, mileage accrual, upgrade eligibility, priority check-in and lounge access.”
The new flexible “Fare Choices” will be available on all domestic and international routes through all of Jet Airways’ booking channels, including its website as well as travel agencies.
