National passenger carrier Air India on Monday said that it has added seven more centres under its ‘Spot Fares’ scheme.

According to the airline, the scheme is intended to offer fares equivalent to that of a second class seat ticket of the Rajdhani Express.

“On account of popular response and with an aim to enhance growth, national carrier Air India has decided to add seven more centres under its ‘Spot Fares’ scheme,” the airline said in a statement.

Earlier, the passenger carrier had offered ‘Super Fares’ seats to the passengers who were unable to get confirmed bookings on Rajdhani Express at a price equivalent to first class seats in the train.

The scheme was launched on select domestic sectors from June 27 to September 30.

“These fares would be available for sale within four hours of the scheduled departure of the flights. These fares are available for sale through city and airport booking offices, call centre and Air India website,” the statement said.

The airline further said that the scheme is available for more than 100 flights across the country.

“By introducing these fares we are not only able to generate additional revenue but also able to fill each and every seat till the last minute,” the statement added.
