New Delhi: What could be said as a piece of excitement for air passengers, no-frill carrier SpiceJet has cut down the airfares drastically.
SpiceJet is offering a limited-period sale of 10 lakh seats across its domestic network for an all- inclusive fare of Rs. 2,013.
This offer has generated quite an excitement amongst air commuters and an instant rush is being witnessed for cashing in on the offer. The promotional offer follows schemes like 'Jaldi Jaldi' of Air India and is valid for sale till January 13 from today, for travel between February 1 and April 30, a SpiceJet spokesperson said.
SpiceJet's offer could pave way for similar offers given the tough competition in the economical-range airlines.
SpiceJet website is busy with heavy traffic as the offer assumes greater significance in the wake of the train fare hike.
The 'Big Sale' offer would be valid for bookings made through SpiceJet's website, online travel agents and other travel agencies only, the spokesperson said, adding the fares are available for direct flights only.
"The offer truly provides an opportunity for all air travellers to fly at such a low price. The scheme offers an opportunity for travellers to fly even at lower than train fares," SpiceJet CEO Neil Mills said.
"Our online booking site is currently experiencing heavy traffic. Please try again later.", says a statement.
