Air India offers 'hefty discounts' on last-minute bookings

In a huge respite to passengers reeling under the impact of exorbitant fares since the grounding of Jet Airways, national carrier Air India said it will sell last-minutes tickets at a hefty discount. 
 
Earlier, an airline official had said that it would offer a flat 50% discount on last-minute bookings. Air India has decided to sell the very last minutes inventory within three hours of departure at a "hefty discount," the airline said in a statement, without quantifying the discount. The decision was taken at a commercial review meeting of the airline at its headquarters, the airline statement added. The decision was taken at a commercial review meeting of the airline at its headquarters on Friday, the airline statement added. 
 
Generally, customers are forced to shell out over 40% or more for the last-minute bookings over the average fares. However, in case of a demand-supply mismatch following the grounding of Jet Airways, the difference is much higher normally, an airline official said. 
 
Now the last-minute travelers, especially those travelling for urgencies, can book tickets at much cheaper level, the airline added. 
 
Tickets can be booked from its counters, on the website, on the mobile app, or through agents, the statement said.
