State-run Air India will now fly unconfirmed passengers of Rajdhani trains at the fares matching with the AC first class ticket prices under a special scheme for a limited period.

Rajdhani Express passengers who remain wait-listed can now book the tickets four hours prior to the flight departure at a fare which is equivalent to the ticket price IA class of these trains, Air India said today.

Under the ‘Super Saver’ scheme, Air India offers an all-inclusive economy class one way fare on its select domestic routes, starting June 26 till September 30, it said.

Currently 21 Rajdhani Express trains run across the Indian Railways network and close to 20,000 passengers travel in these train everyday.

As on date, 1A Rajdhani fares for Mumbai and Chennai stood at Rs 4,755 and Rs 6,335, respectively.

Similarly, the first AC fares for these trains to Kolkata and Guwahati were Rs 4,815 and Rs 5,990, respectively.

“However, thousands of passengers are unable to get confirmed tickets due to non-availability of seats. Air India will bridge this gap as passengers,” the airline said.

By availing the scheme, passengers will not only reach their destination at the same cost of Rajdhani Express, but in much lesser time, it said.
