For the first time ever you can now buy flight tickets at the best fares on any mobile phone or operator simply via SMS. Just SMS your departure city, arrival city and date of travel to 667711 and get the best deals on 8 domestic airlines. Not only can you search and book, but even pay securely via SMS (PayMate users) to get a PNR number instantly. Non-PayMate users can choose from a range of payment options available over a call with a customer service executive. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: SEARCH
SMS FLY to 667711 E.g. FLY Mumbai Delhi 20 Mar

Step 2: BOOK
You will receive an SMS detailing all flight options with departure time and cheapest available fares. To book, reply to the SMS with the preferred flight option and passenger name

Step 3: PAY
To buy the ticket PayMate users can authorize payment via SMS with their PayMate PIN and get an instant PNR. Non-PayMate users will be called by a ticketing executive to complete the booking.

“With FlyBuySms customers no longer have to log on to a website or depend on their travel agent to do the ticketing. They have all options available on their mobile screen with a simple SMS. In fact even being able to pay via securely SMS makes this an end-to-end solution whereby customers can not just search and book but actually buy the tickets on the go. Given the high convenience value and mobile usage, we see this becoming a major ticketing medium in the near future” says Ajay Adiseshann, MD and Founder, PayMate.

PayMate has partnered with Travelmartindia for the ticketing fulfillment and will also be adding options for airline specific or time-band specific search in the next phase of FlyBuySms road-map.
