On Monday, SpiceJet triggered a third round of fare war in the last one month, lowering fares by up to 75 per cent. The no-frill airline had announced a 50 per cent and 30 per cent reduction in fares in quick succession in mid-January to attract customers.

The move was immediately aped by its rivals IndiGo and GoAir with almost matching discounts.
