SpiceJet will soon offer passengers the option of booking a taxi to reach the airport, at the time of booking.

The carrier has joined hands with cab aggregator ‘mytaxiindia’ (MTI) for this service.

The move is aimed at attracting more customers from Tier II and III cities, according to SpiceJet.

“The partnership with ‘mytaxiindia’ will encourage us to explore more routes where the demand could be higher,” SpiceJet vice-president (Business Development) Amit Srivastava said.

“SpiceJet expects the initiative to also help in raking in more revenues with more number of travellers also complement the government’s overall efforts to boost regional air connectivity,” he said.

MIT’s CEO and co-founder Anshuman Mihir said the tie-up would strengthen their network in Tier II and III cities.

MTI, the taxi aggregator that started operations in late 2013, has more than 454 cab operators on board and its services are available in 119 cities.

The start-up has received investments from various companies including Japan’s taxi rental company Nihon Kotsu.

SpiceJet operates more than 300 daily flights to 41 destinations, including six international ones.
