The national carrier will launch a Fly For Sure scheme under which passengers can pay ₹2,000 and board any other Air India flight on the same sector on the same day on missing their booked flight.
“If you are uncertain about your plans, pay extra ₹2,000 while booking the ticket and get to board any Air India flight on the same day and same sector,” as per the scheme, to be launched tentatively on January 11.
Air India Chairman and MD Ashwani Lohani said the scheme would help passengers to ensure they reach their destination the same day. “This way we will not lose passengers to our competing airlines.

Low-cost airline SpiceJet had launched a similar scheme last year.Read More…
