Hours after SpiceJet said it is offering a 50% discount on base fares for a period of three days, Indigo too threw its hat in the ring, saying it has also effected a similar scheme.
India’s largest passenger carrier by market share IndiGo also slashed its fares by around 50% for 30-day and 60-day advance purchases on its website.
The airline, however, declined to comment on whether the drop in fares was part of a discount campaign.Air India is also expected to take call on dropping its fares in a day or two.
There are limited tickets available and the discount window is open for a period of three days in both cases. The discount is valid for travel up to April 15, 2014.
Last year when the airlines had offered hefty discounts, it was valid through the year.
ET Now reports that Jet Airways and Go Air are also likely to follow suit.
SpiceJet, the low-cost airline owned by the Sun Group, earlier in the day said it is offering 50% discount on base fares for a period of three days.
The sales of the tickets ends at 23:59 hours on January 23.
“Tickets need to be booked at least 30 days prior to the travel day,” according to the website of the airline.
The offer from SpiceJet says all applicable fee and taxes will have to borne by the customer. So, if we calculate, a Goa to Mumbai fare is just 20% cheaper.
