SpiceJet re-ignites fare war; cuts airfares by 30%
Mumbai: No-frills carrier SpiceJet Friday extended its special fare offer and announced a 30 percent discount on tickets on domestic routes for a limited number of seats.
SpiceJet offers a "second chance" sale for its customers who book at least 30 days in advance for travel till April 15, the airline said in a release here.
The bookings under the "second chance" offer will remain open from January 31 till Sunday midnight.
The offer is being extended following an "overwhelming" success of the private airline's "super sale" programme announced earlier, the carrier said.
Earlier this month, the budget airline had triggered a fare war by offering discounts as high as 50 percent on domestic travel for a limited period to beat the March quarter blues.
The airline, however, did not share data related to increase in bookings following the earlier offer.
"Under this (new) offer, all customers can get a 30 percent discount on the already discounted 30-day advance purchase base fare and fuel surcharge for SpiceJet domestic flights for travel till April 15," the release said.
The seats under this offer are, however, limited and availability depends on specific date and flight, it added.
