R Ambika, who handles domestic tickets at a travel agency, had a hectic day on Tuesday after SpiceJet announced a three-day sale of 1 tickets on its direct flights. Large numbers of clients made enquiries, and most people who booked tickets planned to travel with their families to Madurai, Trichy, Goa, Delhi and Mumbai.
Though the 1 tickets, excluding taxes, were sold out, many bought tickets to more than one destination because fares worked out cheaper to travel in a group in September, November and December. Tickets on select routes were also priced at 799 and 1,490.
Chennai-Mumbai tickets are selling at 1,500 for September and December while the same tickets are priced at more than 3,500 on other airlines.
