Jet Airways has introduced a booking feature, Fare Lock, allowing passengers to retain a selected fare for a limited period.
They can then buy the fare later. There is the non-refundable fee for locking in the fare.
Jet Airways is the first airline in India to launch this feature.
Fare Lock is applicable for flights across the Jet Airways’ network and offers passengers the opportunity to plan their travel with greater ease and convenience.
Once a passenger selects the Fare Lock option, they will need to pay a fee of INR 350 (5 USD) for a domestic ticket and INR 700 (10 USD)for an international ticket to lock the available fare.
Passengers can return to any of the Jet Airways online platforms within the next 72 hours to buy the tickets and confirm their booking at the pre-selected fare by using the Manage Booking feature.
