Railways Trolls Indigo For Extra Charges On Web Check-ins

| Published on November 27, 2018

Problems seem not to end for Airline companies in our country. All of them are experiencing big losses and to compensate that, they are trying new strategies which have failed till now. Indigo recently confirmed about charging extra money on web check-ins and this started a debate online.


Users on social media opposed this decision and demanded relief from the airline authorities. Even big corporate names including Vijay Shekhar Sharma expressed concerned but it looks like nothing gonna change this scenario for passengers.

Trying to take the benefit of this situation, Indian Railways has played a smart move which is gathering attention from people all across the country.

Tweeting about their service and affordable rates, Ministry of Railways wrote “No need to pay extra charges for Web-Checkins. No long queues for checking in your luggage. Avoid unreasonable tariff & reduce your carbon footprint by travelling on the good old Indian Railways at affordable rates.” along with an image reading “Why pay a premium for web-checkins on flights…when you can just take a train?”

The tweet has got mixed replies as some are praising the marketing tactic while others are cursing Railways for their poor quality services. Have a look at some of the responses:

Kudos for the tweet

A perfect jibe at Indigo

Next time, its only Indian Railways, just for this tweet.

Nice advertisement. But beware

Never thought Indian railways could ever be proactive like the private sector.
