New Delhi, Mar 21: Budget carrier GoAir rolled out a limited period low fares scheme, offering one way ticket prices as low as Rs 999 with a more than four months validity period for travel across its network.
The bookings for the three-day offer commence today. The fares, offered under the scheme are non-refundable and available only for a limited number of seats, the airline said in a statement.
The note said "Airlines have been offering huge discounts due to intense competition. If the situation is not contained, some airlines may face closure in the near future.
"Therefore, steps may be taken to fix minimum airfare to be charged by each airline."
"There is a need to cap maximum economy class airfare at a reasonable price of about Rs 20,000 beyond which airline should not be allowed to charge, exploiting passengers' urgency for travel due to various reasons," the note had said.
Low-budget carrier SpiceJet on Thursday, March 19 has come up with an another interesting offer. Now, the airline is offering international flight ticket at Rs 2,699.
SpiceJet introduced the new sale offer under the name of 'Let's Go Abroad Sale'. Under this new scheme, the airline is offering one-way fares as low as Rs 2,699 on international routes.
Tickets should be booked between March 19 to March 22 to avail this offer and travel time is valid March 19 to June 30.
