Flight ticket enquiry has become more convenient since the time online portals have started. You can now do it as per your convenience and on any device. Once you register with a portal or the airline, the complete information about the destinations, timings etc flash on your screen. It saves you plenty of time and effort from the need to visit travel agents or the airline offices enquiring about flights.
People usually do a flight ticket enquiry for various reasons. It could be to check
- Which airlines fly to the destination they want?
- The timings and duration.
- The airfare and do a comparison.
- The availability of seats.
This is important as the timings and fares could vary. If you do a proper check and have a connecting flight elsewhere, you can choose a flight which does not require you to do much waiting at the airport lounge. In case it is a business trip for a day you could do an early morning, flight and return the same evening itself if business work is completed. You can manage with a hand baggage and avoid hotel stay.
How to do a flight ticket enquiry:
You must enter the destinations i.e. city of departure and arrival. Please select if you require one-way ticket or a round-trip. There could be a multi-city option also available if you require a stop or if there are no direct flights. Click on search.
Choose from the list of flights- the one that is most convenient for you. You may be asked the number of passengers traveling with you. The dates are important. There could be a considerable difference on different dates. If everything is as per your requirements, you could proceed to close the deal by moving on to the payment options. Enter the complete information of each passenger as per the ID card that they carry. In India, it is the Aadhar card that is considered as a valid ID.
An e-ticket is issued and sent to the email that you have registered with the portal. You will also be provided with a PNR (Passenger reference number) which you must use in all your future correspondence about your flight ticket enquiry.
Importance of PNR
The PNR is a computer-generated identification that is recorded in the computer reservation system of the airlines in which you are booked. It contains the complete itinerary, passenger details, seat numbers if you gave your preference and paid for it etc. It also records details regarding meals, class of travel, any special assistance (request for wheelchair, infant seat). It is based on the PNR your boarding pass is issued. You can opt for the web check-in facility and save yourself from the need to go early. Another important point about the flight ticket enquiry is to reconfirm your flight a couple of days prior to your journey.
Booking flight ticket has become easy and you can always approach the airlines or the online portals from any of your digital devices.
