Mumbai based Jet Airways on Monday unveiled a new strategy to offer different choice to customers, while booking tickets in the economy and premiere segment.
The new scheme known as ‘Fare Choices’ will be launched by Jet Airways on August 17, 2016. It will provide passengers more choice and freedom while booking flights and will allows them to customize their journey according to their needs.
The various fare categories are differentiated based on the changeability and refundability of a ticket, baggage allowance, mileage accrual, upgrade eligibility, priority check-in and lounge access.
“Fare choices will enhance our ability to compete with the low cost carriers exponentially. This will also enable customers to book their trips early and also according to their budget,”said Colin Neubronner, senior vice president sales and marketing, Jet Airways.
The new flexible ‘Fare Choices’ will be available on all domestic and international routes through Jet Airways website and mobile application.
A total of eight new choices will be introduced across economy, premiere and first class. Passengers traveling in the economy segment will have the option of choosing from the Deal, Saver, Classic and Flex fare categories.
“Passengers in the Premiere class can choose from Saver, Classic and Flex as well though there is one fare category for First Class. The baggage allowance is differentiated according to routes based on piece and weight and the same will reflect on the e-ticket,” said a company statement.
