IRCTC app to book air tickets

By | TNN 

Patna: The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has claimed to have developed a mobile app which will enable booking of air tickets simpler, speedier and with the lowest fare as well.

Flyers need to download the IRCTC Android-based mobile app ‘IRCTC Air’ from the Google Playstore. “Subsequently, they could swipe, shuffle, select and book air tickets,” said senior IRCTC manager Sandip Dutta.

A passenger’s existing IRCTC login credentials are applicable to this app, too, and no separate user’s name or password is needed, he said.

According to sources, booking for maximum nine passengers can be done against one PNR through net banking for only Rs10 per PNR. As such, the IRCTC app provides the lowest fare available and it does not charge convenience/processing fee from air passengers.

On the other hand, air travel websites charge around Rs150-250 per passenger per sector. Besides, cancellation charges of IRCTC are also very low, sources said. More info
