Diwali bonanza: Indigo announces offers, ticket prices start from Rs 1141

Diwali bonanza: Indigo announces offers, ticket prices start from Rs 1141”

A Jet Airways Boeing 737 aircraft taxis past an Air India Airbus A321 aircraft at Mumbai's Chhatrapathi Shivaji International Airport February 3, 2013.

With Diwali festivities inching closer, airlines are throwing out big offers to travellers in the form of sharp discounts. Somehow, this year it has been the other way round. Typically, fares in the fortnight leading up to Diwali and in the quarter leading up to 10 January are among the highest in the year, helping airlines compensate for the losses they sustain in the lean seasons. One-way economy fares from Delhi to Mumbai are now selling for INR 2.000, all inclusive. It seems there are too many seats and too few passengers for airlines these days.

A search on e-ticketing portals like MakeMyTrip and Cleartrip shows airline ticket fares have dropped in different routes across the country. MakeMyTrip co-founder Keyur Joshi tells Mint that aviation is the bellwether of the economy and low fares during festive season is a sign of a general slowdown. Under the new offer by Vistara, you will be able to book tickets for the economy class beginning at Rs 1,149 and for the premium economy class the prices start at Rs 2,099, according to the company. The three day sale - starting from October 11 to October 13, 2017 - is valid for travel 15 days post the date of booking, on select domestic destinations.

"Through this "Festival of Lights" sale, our customers have one final opportunity this year to book their travel for the festive and holiday season at incredible fares", said Vistara Chief Strategy and Commercial Officer Sanjiv Kapoor.

If you don't cash in on the festive period, are you even a legit business? Once the seats are sold out, the fares will go back to the normal rates.
