Besides the limited-period offers, IRCTC Air also offers defence fares and leave travel concession (LTC) tickets for government officials. Moreover, customers are provided with a travel insurance of Rs 50 lakh for every air ticket booked through the IRCTC portal.

The company also boasts of having a "hassle-free booking experience" with user-friendly features such as guiding customers to easily search for flights, compare prices, and book their round and multi-city tickets.
