Air India and AccessRail sign agreement; airline to provide access to bus & train connections in European cities

Air India on Tuesday announced its plans to sign an intermodal interline agreement with AccesRail, an IATA travel partner to boost connectivity options for Air India guests across European cities without airports, said the company through its statement.

The airline said that the agreement will allow customers using Air India to travel on a single intermodal ticket and have access to bus and train connections to around 100 cities and towns in Austria, Belgium, Germany and other locations via its European gateways of Amsterdam, Birmingham, London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Milan, and Vienna.

AccesRail’s network of rail and bus operators that are available under its agreement with Air India include Avanti West Coast (UK), Great Western Railways (UK), London North Eastern Railways (UK), National Express (UK), Trenitalia (Italy), ÖBB Austrian Railways (Austria), SNCB Belgian Railways, and Thalys (Netherlands/Belgium).

The airline hopes to extend the facility of intermodal tickets to its own sales channel soon since this feature is available with travel agents globally.

Customers will have the same baggage allowance on these rail or bus operator services as offered on Air India's flights, said the statement.
