Mumbai: Special low airfares are pouring in ahead of the monsoon with domestic carrier Jet Airways rolling out cheaper air tickets to woo fliers during the lean travel season.
In its “GetMore” scheme, Jet Airways is offering fliers a 20 per cent discount on business and economy class base fares for a limited period on its domestic network.
Jet Airways in a release said the promotional fare will be applicable on tickets booked between June 2 and June 6 for travel between June 25 and September 30.
Two quarters of the year – July-September and January-March – are considered lean seasons in terms of travel demand during which airlines offer low ticket prices to fill the empty seats in their aircraft.
“The five-day #GetMore offer will allow flyers to avail substantial savings of up to 20 per cent on base fares. It will be valid on all direct flights across Jet Airways’ extensive domestic network,” the Jet Airways release said.
The Jet Airways offer comes after other domestic carriers – Air India, IndiGo, SpiceJet, GoAir and AirAsia India – announced similar sachems for customers recently.
According to a recent airfare analysis by online travel portal MakeMyTrip, there has been a year-on-year drop in airfares of up to 35 per cent on domestic routes and 16 per cent on international routes during the April-June quarter of the current year compared with the corresponding period of 2015
