Now, book flight tickets via SMS

Mumbai: Bangalore-based company Flight Raja is all set to revolutionise air travel—after its official launch on Friday—because of its mobile flight reservation service.
‘‘We offer all domestic airlines, available to the entire nation on a single SMS and provide instant ticketing, a first for India,’’ said Harsh Azad, director (Mobile), Flight Raja.
The simple, four-step procedure to fly through mobile (see box) took the team six months to execute and has seen an investment of ‘‘roughly a quarter million US dollars,’’ Azad added.
‘‘Payments can be made both by credit card and cash. We have tied up with UTI and SBI banks for the latter,’’ said Amit Aggarwal, director (Kiosk).
Currently, among the domestic carriers, individual airlines like Indian, Air Deccan and IndiGo have options for mobile bookings.
