Convert Your Waitlisted Train Ticket Into an Airline Ticket


… the scheme applies to tickets booked at least three days prior to the date of the journey. The flight tickets would be made available only for the day of the train journey or a day after that …

… Passengers booking train tickets right from sleeper class to AC classes can avail the facility, Mr Dutta said. "For such passengers, the airline ticket would be competitively priced and cheaper by as much as 30-40 per cent," he said. …

… The airlines would be placing their unsold tickets with IRCTC, a move that not only promises a boon for the domestic carriers but an added option for the passengers in reaching their destination without having to abort their trip. With an average seat factor of about 70 to 75 per cent, most of the domestic airlines fly with about 20 per cent seats empty in their plane and IRCTC plans to make the best use of it.


Some good news from India… for a change.

THAT is smart. Whoever came up with this, deserves some praise and mention - at the least! (Mr. Dutta is the spokesperson for IRCTC. The article does not mention Who / Which team came up with this scheme).
