Now, SpiceJet offers Rs 499 fare on domestic network

Last updated on: September 01, 2014 16:27 IST

SpiceJet on Monday launched yet another limited period special fare scheme, 'Early Bird', offering customers ticket prices as low as Rs 499 on its domestic network.

The bookings for this three-day offer commences from Monday with a travel validity period between January 16 and October 24 next year, SpiceJet said.

SpiceJet offers discounted flying options to destinations across the country, with one way fares starting as low as Rs 499 (including fuel surcharge but excluding applicable statutory taxes and fees), the release said.

This sale will allow customers to enjoy low fares by planning their journey and holidays in advance.

The sale offer is applicable on all direct, via and connecting flights on SpiceJet's domestic network.

"While the number of travellers opting for air travel during holidays has increased over the years, with the introduction of Early Bird sale, this number will only grow further.

“This early bird sale will encourage customers to make their holiday plans well in advance and save on travel costs at the same time," said Kaneswaran Avili, Chief Commercial Officer, SpiceJet Ltd.

"This will also allow an average Indian customer to plan for more than the typical one holiday during the year at never before rates," Avili said.

Last week also, the Kalanithi Maran-promoted budget airline SpiceJet had announced a similar discounted scheme offering passengers fares starting Rs 1,888 across its domestic destinations.

The airline operates more than 340 daily flights to 49 destinations, comprising 41 Indian and 8 international cities.
