SpiceJet, IndiGo cut fare in lean season, fuel price war


New Delhi: Domestic airlines are gearing up for the lean travel season — February to April — coming out with discounts to lure passengers. Low-cost carrier SpiceJet announced on Thursday that it will offer fares for R2,013 across its network for tickets booked between January 11 and January 13, while India’s largest passenger carrier IndiGo will offer discounted fares on select domestic routes.
A Mumbai-Delhi one-way fare on IndiGo is available for R2,010 as part of the low cost carrier’s discounts. Jet Airways has also come out with a winter sale where it is offering an 8% discount on tickets booked on its website. However, despite the discount, Jet Airways has not underpriced its tickets and the fares still remain higher than its low-cost competitors.
