Mumbai: Low-fare domestic carriers are restarting promotional offers to stimulate passenger demand in March, traditionally a lean period for the sector.
Delhi-based low-cost carrier SpiceJet Ltd on Wednesday reintroduced a buy-one-get-one-free scheme. The scheme is valid only for two days, 4 March through 6 March, and is available only through the airline’s official website. The offer, introduced for the third time, will attract other charges including taxes and various development fees on the free tickets where applicable.
IndiGo has reacted by offering all inclusive tickets at Rs1,600 for distances less than 750km and Rs2,600 for more than 750km. IndiGo’s offer is also limited to the same dates as SpiceJet. GoAir has claimed on its website that it is offering Re0 base-fare tickets, excluding taxes and surcharges, for booking 30 days in advance.
