IRCTC to offer air tickets to train passengers


PATNA: Unable to travel in a train because your waitlist ticket could not be confirmed? Do not cancel your trip as now you have the option to fly to your destination at a competitive fare.

Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has tied up with GoAir and SpiceJet airlines for the benefit of such rail passengers to book their air tickets on IRCTC site.

IRCTC manager Sandip Dutta said under the new arrangement, IRCTC sends a mail to all waitlisted passengers booked through its website after the reservation chart of a train has been prepared. For availing the facility, the date of ticket booking has to be three days prior to the date of journey, he said, adding the name of the passenger has to be same while the date of flight booking has to be the same day.
