SpiceJet on Saturday launched two new slabs of competitive basic airfare rates, as other Indian carriers extended dates for booking low cost tickets over the past few days.
The low one-way base fare tickets of the no-frill carrier can be bought till September ten, costing Rs 599 for travel between January 16-October 24 next year and Rs 1,999 for travel between October seven this year and January 15, 2015.
For the Rs 599 offer, taxes and other fees and charges, barring fuel surcharge, would be additional, but the Rs 1,999 offer is all-inclusive.
"SpiceJet has been one of the main drivers of demand stimulation and market growth this year... This demand stimulation has been a win-win, with airlines earning more revenues, with travellers getting fantastic deals, and with the travel industry and economy at large getting a boost," airline's CEO Sanjiv Kapoor said.
The move of the no-frill carrier, which has been making such offers since January, comes in the wake of several foreign and Indian carriers vying with each other to attract Indian flyers by offering discounted tickets.
Air India, Jet Airways, IndiGo and GoAir have all come out with special offers in the recent past, with new airlines like Air Costa and AirAsia India also jumping on the bandwagon.
