Singapore Airlines slashes fares from India

Singapore Airlines has announced a new low fare sale from India to select destinations in South East Asia and Australia.

As per the ad in today’s Times of India, Bangalore edition, the fares round-trip ex-Bangalore to Singapore is INR 16,830, Denpasar/Bali/Kuala Lumpur/Penang/Langkawi/Kuching/Bangkok INR 23,980, Sydney/Perth/Brisbane/Melbourne/Adelaide INR 41,350. These include taxes and surcharges.

Fares are for economy class travel. Tickets must be purchased by January 15, 2009 and will be valid for travel from December 29, 2008 to March 31, 2009 for Singapore and South-East Asia and from February 01, 2009 to June 30, 2009 for the Australian destinations.

Similar offers are available from other Singapore Airlines cities in India.

One can also expect SQ’s competitors, Malaysia Airlines, Thai Airways, and Jet Airways, to follow suit.

Since the travel agents’ boycott of Singapore Airlines commences today, I recommend Bangalore Aviation readers to visit the Singapore Airline website.
