With the airline companies in India trying to bring customers to their side with new offers, it was only a matter of time when will the largest carrier, at least when it comes to domestic market share, IndiGo join the fray.
The budget carrier has announced that it is offering a discount on all-inclusive, one-way fares, which will start as low as Rs 1,399.
IndiGo's "lower than low" scheme includes tickets from Delhi to Goa, Mumbai, Chennai, Bhubaneswar, Lucknow, Kolkata, Jaipur and Bengaluru, among other domestic destinations.
How are Tickets Priced?
The lowest fare offered by IndiGo will be for the Delhi-Jaipur route at Rs 1,399. It is followed by Delhi-Mumbai route for Rs 2,952, Delhi-Pune is Rs 3,596, Delhi- Bhubaneswar is Rs 3,957; Delhi-Chennai fare is Rs 4,378; Delhi Coimbatore is Rs 4,690 and Delhi-Goa route is Rs 4,694.
According to IndiGo, these all-inclusive one-way tickets will be:
"Valid for bookings made 90 days before travel date."
What do the Other Carriers Offer?
Other Indian airline companies are not far behind IndiGo with their offers.
AirAsia India has previously revealed that it is offering promotional fares starting at Rs 1,290. Bookings for these are open until 19th April. These tickets can be used for travel with AirAsia India between 15th June and 30th September.
Before this, IndiGo also offered one-way fares starting at Rs 1,178, while another Indian carrier, GoAir came up with their offer for tickets priced as low as Rs 1,299.
All of these offers are clear attempts of Indian carriers to get a little more traffic their way, especially between January and March as well as July and September. These periods normally bring low travel demand for the carriers and less customers. The hope is that a lower fare price will bring more passengers.
