Jet Airways joins hands with Ghar Pay for cash-on-delivery

Jet Airways on Thursday announced a convenient payment option for its customers, which allows them to book tickets online on the domestic carrier's portal and pay by cash later, a move aimed at enhancing the airline's distribution network.

The latest offering "cash on delivery" is available only for those customers who book their tickets through the Jet Airways' website, a press release said here.

The airline has tied-up with the Hyderabad-based cash collection solutions provider GharPay to deliver the service, it said.

"Guests selecting the cash-on-delivery option while booking their tickets online will be contacted by GharPay to confirm the time and location for collecting the payment. Once the payment is collected, the e-ticket will be automatically sent to the guest's email address," the release said.

More importantly, guests are not required to make any advance payment online at the time of booking the ticket and there is no additional fee for this service, it added.

"We are happy to introduce a worry-free payment initiative for the discerning guest. We are confident that the convenience and simplicity of this service will increase our distribution reach and will be appreciated by our guests who chose cash-on-delivery as a preferred mode of payment," Jet Airways chief commercial officer Sudheer Raghavan said.

The scheme has been made available across 16 cities pan-India covering over 900 postal codes and will be available in additional cities, which include places like Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Gurgaon, Noida, Navi Mumbai, Thane, Visakhapatnam, the airline said.
