Mumbai: To provide greater flexibility in booking an air ticket, private carrier Jet Airways Friday said it would now allow its customers to retain a "selected" fare for a limited period before confirming the purchase at a later date.
The new booking feature, 'FareLock', introduced today has made the Jet Airways the first domestic airline to have such a
provision, a release said.
A customer availing the option, however will have to shell out Rs 350 for a domestic ticket and Rs 700 for an international ticket to lock the available fare, it said.
FareLock is applicable for flights across the Jet Airways' network and offers customers the opportunity to plan their travel with greater ease and convenience, the release said.
"This unique feature allows guests to have greater flexibility in planning their travel while locking fares in advance of the actual purchase. It will transform the way guests book tickets using our online platforms. With the introduction of FareLock, Jet Airways has yet again raised the industry benchmark for customer experience," Jet Airways Vice President (Commercial) Guarang Shetty said.
According to the release, FareLock is available on the Jet Airways' online platforms, including its website and the mobile app, among others.
