TruJet plans bus service for passengers
July 17 (TravelAndy): Hyderabad-based budget-airline TruJet plans to pick up its flyers from their hometowns and ferry them to the airports.
The airline, which will start regular flights on the Chennai-Rajahmundry route from July 25, plans to start this service for small towns in and around Chennai, Salem and Coimbatore.
“We are yet to decide which towns to connect by road. But we want to bring people from Puducherry to Chennai airport by road. They can be put on our flights to Hyderabad or Aurangabad,” TruJet managing director Vankayalapati Umesh told The Times of India newspaper.
“Passengers can check in baggage from the point of boarding the bus. All they have to do is to walk in for security check,” he said.
Air-conditioned Volvo buses will be used to pick up passengers. The airline has a similar plan to pick up passengers from Shirdi who want to fly out of the Aurangabad airport.
