Airline discounts: Air India launches ‘super sale’, tickets from Rs1,499


New Delhi: Following budget carriers such as SpiceJet and IndiGo rolling out low airfares, state-owned Air India Ltd has also launched a limited period sale scheme, offering customers all-inclusive ticket prices starting from Rs.1,499 for domestic flights.

The tickets under the “super sale offer” can be booked between 21 and 25 May for travel between July and 30 September, Air India said. The July-September and January-March quarters are considered the lean season in terms of travel demand.

Last week, three low-cost airlines—SpiceJet, IndiGo and AirAsia India—had announced low airfares too. While SpiceJet offered one-way fares starting Rs.511, IndiGo offeredRs.800. AirAsia India, which is completing two years of operations, had also cut ticket prices by half on several routes.
