Taking a cue from its competitor IndiGo, no-frill carrier SpiceJet on Friday announced up to 25% discount on tickets for four or more passengers travelling together on domestic flights.


Under the 'Friends and Family' offer, four to nine air travellers can travel together on domestic routes and get a discount of up to 25% on the base fare. However, a limited number of seats was available under the offer on each flight.

In a statement, the airline gave the instance of travel on the Delhi-Mumbai sector for Saturday, saying that instead of Rs. 44,088 for four passengers flying together, they would have to pay Rs. 36,368 under this scheme.

SpiceJet has consolidated its base fare by including fuel surcharge in it.

"We are confident that this (offer) will give our customers even more reasons to recommend us to their family and friends to fly with us," said Kaneswaran Avili, chief commercial officer of SpiceJet.

Three days ago, budget carrier IndiGo had announced special family fares offering similar discount of up to 25% for a family of four to nine travelling together on a single PNR across its domestic network.
