Air India dangles up to 50% fare cut

The state-run airline has rolled out a limited period low fare offer, starting at Rs 1,557 across its domestic network which include metro cities such as Delhi and Mumbai.

The sale is on from January 12 to 18 for a travel period between January 16 and April 30. “Air India announced a sale on Monday on short advance purchase bookings (for travel between January 16 to
April 30).

With tickets starting as low as Rs 1,557, the sale has witnessed a very enthusiastic response,” MakeMyTrip Senior Vice President for Flights Ranjeet Oak said.

Bookings are up by over 100 per cent week-on-week, he said, adding this sale followed by a similar offer from Jet Airways.

Full service carrier Jet Airways had late last month rolled out a discounted ticket scheme, offering customers upto 30 per cent low fares on both its domestic and international flights.

“You can’t start a business by being worried about competition but by believing you have a space. Competition is good for customers,” Vistara Chairman Prasad Menon had said at the time of airline’s launch.
