Flying to Europe cheaper than domestic this Diwali
Zeebiz Bureau

New Delhi: The season of Diwali is in full swing, so are travel fares. Air travel has seen a dramatic shift in prices as ticket sales are punched at all-time highs with international flights costing less than domestic ones.

One Monday, a one-way ticket from the capital to Lucknow was priced at around Rs 30,000 while a Delhi-Bangalore for the big festival cost travelers as much as Rs 42,500.

Apparently, it could cost less to travel to Europe or Middle-East during the time than it could in the country.

During Dhanteras, Mumbai-Kolkata bound flight was priced between Rs 6,500 and Rs 38,600.

Since Kingfisher is in no condition to fly, the subsequent gap has accounted for 19% reduction in domestic flights. Other airlines are not leaving any chance to make the post profit out of the current situation.

Despite it being festival time, air travel has seen a 100 percent rise in prices.
