The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited (IRCTC) on Friday claimed that it has emerged as one of the major air ticket vendors in less than a month into the new venture.

Being the largest e-commerce site in Asia-Pacific, the IRCTC said, it sold through online over 1500 tickets to the tune of Rs. 50 lakh a day.

On May 5, 2010, the IRCTC started an air ticketing agency, offering a 10 per cent cash-back package.

The IRCTC said it has also excelled as a service provider in tourism, rail ticketing and hospitality sector across the country.
