Now Convert Your ‘Waiting List’ Train Ticket Into An Air Ticket, Says IRCTC.

Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has decided to offer passengers who fail to get their waitlisted ticket confirmed, an option to convert it into an airline ticket at a competitive fare. The passengers would get an air ticket on GoAir on the same route at a competitive price.
“We have also entered into an understanding with SpiceJet under the scheme and plan to rope in other domestic carriers too,” said Sandip Dutta, IRCTC spokesman. He further added,” Passengers booking train tickets right from sleeper class to AC classes can avail the facility.” “For such passengers, the airline ticket would be competitively priced and cheaper by as much as 30-40 percent,” he said.
This scheme was introduced because the domestic airlines have about 20 percent seats empty in their plane. So, this would be beneficial for them as well.
Win-win situation, isn’t it? That’s absolutely a good change for the passengers by IRCTC.
