New Delhi: To lure more passengers during the upcoming festive season, budget airline SpiceJet on Thursday launched a three-day-long discounted one-way fare scheme starting from Rs.799 to Rs.2,699 valid on more than 100,000 seats (excluding taxes).
“We are known as the airline that has made air travel more affordable for more Indians than ever before, revolutionising the industry and driving record growth in passengers in the process,” said Shilpa Bhatia, senior vice president and head of sales and distribution for SpiceJet.
Under the new discount scheme, single one-way fare between Delhi and Mumbai or Mumbai and Chennai will work out at Rs.1,899 (excluding taxes).
With taxes, the fare on these routes will stand at Rs.2,999 for one-way ticket. Similarly, for Mumbai-Kolkata, the complete fare including taxes stand at Rs.3,799 for one-way.
The airline pointed out that the lowest fare of Rs.799 excluding taxes is available on routes such as Delhi-Chandigarh, Mumbai-Goa, Bengaluru-Kochi, Madurai-Chennai, Jammu-Srinagar and Kolkata-Agartala.
The scheme will be available from August 20 to 22 midnight. The travel period covered under this sale period starts from August 25, 2015 to March 26, 2016. The sale is valid only for direct flights within SpiceJet’s domestic network.
To sweeten the deal further, the airline is also offering 10 percent additional discount to those passengers who are booking through SpiceJet’s mobile App on Apples iOS and Android platforms.
However, the airline added that the tickets under the offer are non-refundable — only taxes and fees are refundable.
