National Airlines Air India has announced that they will now lower its last-minute ticket rates to the level of a 2-Tier AC Rajdhani train’s.
The airline is aiming to attract more fliers and get higher seat occupancy in its flights.
As part of its pricing strategy Air India will drop fares on four of its key routes.
These routes are Delhi to Mumbai, Delhi to Chennai, Delhi to Kolkata and Delhi to Bengaluru.
The rates will be applicable four hours prior to the time of the departure of the flight.
The announcement about the plan was made by Air India Chairman Ashwani Lohani, who said that that the move has been aimed to provide relief to the passengers who have to travel at last minute and have to play sky-rocketing fares to fill up otherwise vacant seats.
At present, the price of a Delhi-Mumbai Rajdhani AC II-Tier ticket is Rs.2,870, Delhi-Chennai is Rs.3,905, Delhi-Kolkata is Rs.2,890 and Delhi-Bengaluru is Rs.4,095.
