Flying International From Tier 2 City Is Now Cheaper

For anyone who’s planning on taking an international trip, ixigo, Indian travel search marketplace recommends booking flights from tier 2 cities such as Jaipur, Lucknow, Amritsar, Kochi, etc. By doing so travellers are likely to save up to 41% on their air tickets. With low-cost airlines such as Scoot, AirAsia, Tigerair, Thai Smile, Air Arabia and Air India Express starting operations from tier 2 cities, more and more people are opting to fly out of these cities to fit their international trips in smaller budgets.

Aloke Bajpai, CEO & Co-founder, ixigo, said, “We found that the difference in international airfares from tier 1 & 2 cities is drastic enough to urge travellers to modify their travel plans and fly out of these cities. If planned in time, at an average one can save around 41% on flight bookings, which is much more than the cost that one would have to bear to travel to these tier 2 cities to take their flight. For instance, if you live in Delhi and are planning to travel to Singapore, catching a flight from Jaipur will prove to be cheaper despite the cost involved in reaching there.”
