"As a gesture of goodwill and to mitigate the hardship of the 9W (Jet Airways flight code) at international stations, Air India will be offering special fares to such passengers," it said.

Passengers holding confirmed RT tickets on Jet Airways will be allowed to avail special stranded passenger fares from the destinations common with Air India, it said.

After flying for over 25 years, Jet Airways was grounded on Thursday night when its final flight, a Boeing 737, touched down at the Mumbai airport after departing from Amritsar.

However, the airline stopped its international operations from 11 April, leaving its passengers in the lurch at several international airports across across the world.
