Western Railways said that it will run a special Rajdhani train today from Mumbai to Delhi for passengers stranded at the city airport in view of the ongoing strike by a section of Air India employees.

"To reduce inconvenience caused to people, WR will run one special Rajdhani Express train today from Mumbai to Delhi. If required, we will run more such special trains later," Western Railways Chief PRO S S Gupta said in Mumbai.

The train will leave from Mumbai Central at 2250 hours and will reach Delhi at 1800 hours, the next day.

"The coaches will give passengers comfort on par with the airline travel. It will have 1A, 2A and 3A accommodation," Gupta added.

A section of employees of Air India, including engineers, yesterday went on a flash strike to protest delay in payment of salaries and problems relating to the working conditions of cabin crew.
