SpiceJet and IndiGo offer special low fares

SpiceJet has announced the return of its successful promotion scheme “Book for 2 pay for 1”.

This scheme is valid for bookings made from March 4 to 6, 2009 and only for bookings made through the SpiceJet website. There are conditions attached to this scheme.

SpiceJet in a bid to compete in the business segment with fellow low cost carrier IndiGo has announced some features:

  • Passengers can buy hot coffee or tea with cookies for only Rs 20.
  • Busy travellers can now collect their boarding passes for return flight, at the time of check in, provided they are coming back on the same day.
  • Guests who land after travelling via an International airline, do not need to spend extra, to carry their “two bags”, while they fly with SpiceJet on domestic sectors
  • Music is played as passenger boards and deplanes. This has been composed in-house by SpiceJet employee Moin Wasil.

Fellow low cost carrier IndiGo, has introduced special “all-inclusive” fares of Rs 1,600 and Rs 2,600 for journeys below and above 750 km. The over 750km Rs. 2,600 fare is attractive since, for example, for a Delhi-Mumbai flight the average full fare tickets cost Rs 5,500 or higher. For more details visit the IndiGo website.
