Sky-high fares slide as airlines launch price war

There’s some respite in the offing if you are planning to fly this holiday season. Air fares crashed on Tuesday as airlines rolled out never-before offers to lure passengers and fill empty seats. Jet Airways kicked off the price war with a six-day sale of 20 lakh seats over 450 flights across 57 domestic destinations. Go Air, IndiGo and Spice Jet also followed suit with unannounced cuts.
Under the offer, a Rs 8,000 one-way ticket from Mumbai to Delhi would cost just Rs 2,850. Similar discounts on other sectors are a welcome relief for passengers who have seen fares soar for two years.
The offers, at the lowest possible base fare of Rs 1, have been sweetened even more this year. Unlike in the past, passengers can now book low offers up to December 31. Till last year, such offers were available up to, say, March 31 when the lean season ended, or at the most till July.
