We are happy that we have been able to partner with a premier airline like Jet Airways for the benefit of the running community. We have long felt that with runners travelling between cities for running events there should be some way to aggregate this demand for the benefit of both the runners and event organisers. Here is how it will work.
– Runners after registration for the event on our RACES platform will be taken to a co-branded Jet Airways page.
– Tickets can be booked to the destination city for race weekend. There is a 5-day window of travel. Two days prior and two days post the race. So a 5-day trip can be planned.
– Multiple tickets can be booked. So families can also travel. Or one runner can book for his running friends who are joining him.
– Jet Airways will offer discounted fares to the runners. There may be other no-frills airlines that may be cheaper but the assurance from Jet Airways is that you cannot get a cheaper fare on their system.
– If you are a JetPrivilege frequent flier your miles will accrue as per your plan.
