Air India on Tuesday said it will offer ‘Super Fares’ seats to those who are unable to get confirmed bookings on Rajdhani Express at a price equivalent to first class seats in the train.
“Under the (Super fares) scheme, passengers can book the tickets four hours prior to the flight departure at a fare which is equivalent to that of Rajdhani Express (1A),” it said in a statement.
The airline said passengers can avail an all-inclusive economy class one way fare on select domestic routes from June 26 to September 30.
At present, 21 Rajdhani Express trains run across the Indian Railways network and close to 20,000 passengers travel with the train on daily basis.
The airline said thousands of passengers are unable to get confirmed tickets due to non-availability of seats.
“We will bridge this gap as passengers can book the tickets through Air India booking offices or from www.airindia.com and reach their destination at the same cost of Rajdhani Express, but in much lesser time,” the airline said.
While booking the tickets through Air India website, customers need to apply promo code ‘SPOT’, it said.
