Discount battle heats up as airlines offer Diwali-special fare, starting at Rs 1,073

New Delhi: Airlines in India have rolled out attractive deals for travel this holiday season in their respective Diwali airfare sales. The customers are presented with a flurry of options to choose from as full service airlines Air India and Jet Airways and low cost carriers like Indigo, SpiceJet, GoAir, Vistara etc go head-to-head in the discount battle.
Air India has rolled out a special 10 per cent discount for bookings made on Air India’s web and mobile app for domestic travel in economy and business class between October 13 and December 15 this year. The offer, though, will not be valid for travel on October 21-23.
As general practice, airlines step up fares during the holiday season–typically a fortnight to Diwali going to around mid January. This is the highest grossing period for airlines as travel shoots up during holidays. However, as the airline market opens up and gets more competitive, we are witnessing a different trend.
GoAir is offering tickets as low as Rs 1,073 on select routes–Chennai Hyderabad, Jammu-Leh, Delhi-Chandigarh, Chandigarh-Delhi, Hyderabad-Chennai, Lucknow-Delhi, Kolkata-Pata, Kolkata-Bhubaneswar and Lucknow-Kolkata. The low-cost carrier is offering the discounted fares till October 31, 2017. However, the travel fare can only be availed for travel on discounted ‘low fare wednesday’.
IndiGo’s ‘early flight initiative’ gives travellers the option to use IndiGo Early for a fare of Rs 1,000. The airline is providing this offer to passengers wanting to prepone their flight (within four hours).
