New Delhi: For the next three days, commuters in the national capital can enjoy travel on the high-speed Airport Metro Express at 50 per count discount.

The special fare could help people who have planned a picnic for the extended week-end which begins with Good Friday tomorrow and ends with Easter on Sunday and those who visit the famous Sacred Heart Cathedral Church in Connaught Place.

The Airport Metro Express has been offering discount on its existing promotional fare structure to popularise the showcase corridor among the public. The existing maximum fare is Rs 80, while the minimum is Rs 20.

The 50 per cent discount will be available at all the four operational stations tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday.

The Reliance Infra-led consortium, which runs the Line, had earlier offered discounted fares last week on the occasion of Ram Navami and Baishaki.

The offer is also aimed at facilitating passengers to visit the Sacred Heart Cathedral Church, located in Connaught Place, on Good Friday and Easter, a company spokesperson said.

The commuters can get down at Shivaji Stadium station located on Baba Kharak Singh Marg and reach the Church or Connaught place.

"This discounted fare will encourage people to take the Airport Metro Express, which is secured, faster and comfortable way to reach Connaught place, New Delhi Railway station and Chandni Chowk by avoiding the traffic jams, scorching summer heat and minimising travel time and cost," the spokesperson said.

The 23-km link connecting New Delhi with the new swanky Terminal-3 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport was opened on February 23 and it currently carries over 8,000 people a day.
