Jet Airways has announced a promotional scheme called “Deal Wali Diwali”, offering tickets from an all-inclusive Rs 921.
Jet Airways’ Diwali offer is applicable on economy class travel on select domestic routes.
The offer will be open until October 30, 2016. Jet Airways said that the offer is valid for travel 15 days to post the date of booking, on specific domestic destinations on its network.
A check on Jet Airways website showed that the Rs 921 offer is applicable on the Chennai-Coimbatore route.
Jet Airways has not disclosed the number of seats on offer under the promotional scheme. It has said that the offer is available on the first-come-first-serve basis.
Jayaraj Shanmugam, chief commercial officer of Jet Airways, in a statement, said, “Our special Diwali bonanza fares will enable guests to enjoy significant savings and benefit by scheduling their travel plans well in advance.”
Many domestic airlines have come up with discounted offers this year, spurring a strong growth in domestic air travel.
Registering robust growth, domestic airlines carried over 23 per cent more passengers at 82.3 lakh in September compared to the corresponding period a year ago.
The sustained domestic air passenger traffic growth of more than 20 percent over the past year also comes against the backdrop of airlines coming out with attractive fares to garner increased market share amid stiff competition.
Other carriers including AirAsia India and IndiGo are also currently offering promotional schemes.
