New Delhi : People in India can now use Amazon to book their domestic flights in addition to shopping, money transfers, utility bill payments, mobile recharges — all through one single app, the e-commerce giant announced on Saturday.

Amazon has partnered with online travel and leisure activities platform Cleartrip to launch the service. “We are excited to partner with Cleartrip and share their passion of creating best in class travel experiences,” Shariq Plasticwala, Director, Amazon Pay, said in a statement.

Amazon said it would not levy any additional charges in case customers cancel the ticket. They would only have to pay the airline cancellation penalty, the company said.

Amazon (AMZN) has partnered with Indian travel website Cleartrip on flight bookings. The service is only available in India at the moment, and Amazon declined to comment on whether it plans to roll it out to other countries.
