Vistara fliers too can check-in from Airport expressline
After Air India and Jet Airways, Vistara airlines on Tuesday became the third airline to commence check–in facility for its passengers from the New Delhi Airport Metro Station, where passengers can have their luggage checked-in and collect the boarding passes.
Air India and Jet Airways also celebrated their checking-in two lakh passengers since last year from the New Delhi Airport Metro Station.
With this service, the passengers' checked-in luggage will be transferred to Indira Gandhi International Airport Terminal 3.
Passengers can check-in 2-3 hours before the departure of the flight.
DMRC, Managing Director, Mangu Singh said: "This initiative is expected to benefit the flight bound passengers and encourage them to use this facility also while travelling on the Airport Express line.
"We expect more and more Airlines to come forward and introduce check-in from these Metro stations to give their passengers an alternative and also a world class experience with great convenience on the Airport Express Line."
He also said this service is not only instrumental in its contribution to
keeping the city decongested, but also acts as a reliable mode of transport.
"Especially when one is travelling to the airport, one keeps a buffer time of at least one hour. This service will be very very important in making the commute to the airport more reliable," said Mangu Singh, DMRC.
The baggage check-in by Air India and Jet Airways which used to be around 40-50 per day earlier touched an all time high of around 500 per day in the month of June 2017. This is an increase of almost ten times and an indication of the growing popularity of the check-in facility available on the Airport Express Line. This figure is going to increase further with Vistara too joining the league of Air India and Jet Airways infromed DMRC through press statement.
