Jet Airways has announced that it will be offering customers the option of purchasing a “one fare pass” booklet with four coupons inside that can be used on Jet Airways and JetKonnect flights within India.
The coupons are valid for domestic flights less than 750 km in distance. There three booklet types, one for Premiere (business class) and another for economy class. The Premiere booklet is priced at Rs49,216 (US$892), while the Economy Class One Fare Pass costs Rs19,606 (US$355) for Jet Airways flights, and Rs17,254 (US$313) for JetKonnect. All prices are inclusive of all taxes.
The four-coupon One Fare Pass cannot be bought online and is instead being sold from Jet Airways sales offices and authorised travel agents in India until March 31, 2013. Travel validity is six months from the date of issue. Unused One Fare Pass coupons can be extended beyond the expiry date by up to two months at a charge of Rs1,000 (US$18) per coupon for Premiere and Rs500 (US$9) per flight coupon for economy. The coupons are transferable until details are endorsed on them.
Savings are significant, four regular mid-week trips with Jet Airways from Mumbai to Ahmedabad, for example, cost Rs65,192 (US$1,182) when booked online, which is a lot more than the Rs19,606 (US$355) price tag of the Economy Class One Fare Pass.
The coupons can be used on a selection of over 120 sectors, including popular routes such as Mumbai to Ahmedabad, Baroda, Indore; Chennai to Bengaluru, Kochi and Hyderabad; Delhi to Jaipur, Chandigarh and Amritsar; and Kolkata to Bhubaneshwar, Dibrugarh, Patna and Guwahati.
