Budget carrier SpiceJet on Friday triggered off a price war in the aviation industry announcing one-way discounted fares starting Rs 1,999 for travel between September and December this year, prompting IndiGo to follow with a similar offer soon after.

The offers announced on Monday include one-way fare of Rs 1,999 for a trip between Delhi and Goa though tickets would have to be bought before 30 June.

The offer is valid for travel between 15 Sep and 1 December.

“A popular route like Delhi-Goa is on offer at Rs 1,999 (one way) while the spot-fare for the same route is Rs 11,253. These offers will not only help travellers to plan their Puja holidays but also post-October breaks”, said Rajesh Magow, co-founder & CEO-India, MakeMyTrip. Sharat Dhall, president, added, “We have always seen an increase in bookings during the festive season and are certain that this sale will attract a lot of travellers who would like to book their tickets in advance. We are positive that our bookings will increase by at least threefold during the sale, as the travel dates are in complete sync with Indian vacation goers.”
