How to Twitter:
1. To take advantage of #JetInstant, flyers will first need to follow the official Jet Airways Twitter account @jetairways.
2. To get the flight status, flyers can Tweet ‘@jetairways fltstatus <Flight No> <Departure Date in DDMM format>’ – within seconds, the update will be sent as a Direct Message (DM) to their Twitter account.
3. For LoFares details, flyers need to Tweet ‘@jetairways lofares <Origin> <Destination> <Departure Date in DDMM format> <Return Date in DDMM format>’. For example, to search for the lowest fare for a flight from Mumbai to Delhi on the 4th of March with a return trip the next day, flyers can Tweet: ‘@jetairways lofares BOM DEL 0403 0503’. The #JetInstant service sends the lowest fare available as a DM with a direct link to complete the booking process seamlessly on jetairways.com.
