If you have never booked railway tickets over IRCTC website, then you could have experienced the same today on Air India’s website. The reason is that the national airlines is celebrating its ‘Air India Day’ and due to heavy traffic following its ‘tickets for Rs 100’ offer. Air India is selling tickets for Rs 100 (taxes extra) for the next five days starting today — to celebrate the merger of erstwhile Indian Airlines and Air India on this day in 2007. Some users who tried to go to the website got a ‘System Busy’ message, for others, the page did not load. “On this occasion Air India is launching the Air India Offer for its travellers. Under the scheme tickets will be offered for Rs 100 apart from all applicable taxes. The sale of these tickets will be made only through the Air India website for five days from August 27 to 31 2014 for travel between August 27 and September 30, 2014, only.” This is the first time the airline is celebrating ‘Air India Day’.
And the lucky one’s like me who got it didn’t find any special fare for any flight of any sector. As you can see the ticket for 1 pax from Delhi – Goa is INR 4747/-
