New Delhi: With an aim to cater to the growing number of outbound tourists, Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has come up with its first international package for Dubai in August.
IRCTC, a PSU of Railways, is already involved in organising domestic tour packages in the country.
"There is a strong demand for outbound package so we have decided to launch a week long package for Dubai to begin with. Depending on the response there may be more such packages for other popular international destinations in future," said a senior IRCTC official.
