SpiceJet announced a drop in its fares on advance purchases of tickets. Apart from a reduction in basic fare for flights booked 10 to 15 days in advance, SpiceJet will also remove the congestion surcharge of Rs 150. The airline is trying to help passengers who plan their holidays and business trips in advance.
Announcing the cut, Samyukth Sridharan, Chief Commercial Officer, SpiceJet Limited said, “Fares on our network will be now significantly lower on advance purchase. We have removed the congestion charge completely. With improved infrastructure available, we do not face this problem anymore and our ‘On Time’ Performance across the network is also on an all time high at 88 per cent. Since there is no congestion impacting our service, we want to pass on the benefit to the customers.”
He also announced, “In addition to this we also launch our Special Spicy fares which will ensure our consumers have up to 15 per cent saving on advance purchases.”
“We are also re-launching our services to Jaipur from October 26, 2008. We have seen very good bookings on our newly introduced Mumbai – Jaipur sector. We also offer Mumbai – Goa on a more convenient timing and our flight to Srinagar from Mumbai will now also connect Jammu along with Delhi and help more traffic into the region,” he concluded.
