SpiceJet, IndiGo slash ticket prices in pre-summer sale

MUMBAI

The website of SpiceJet Ltd, India’s second-largest low-fare airline, crashed hours after it launched its pre-summer sale on Tuesday, which offered fares starting at Rs.599 for all its non-stop flights across its domestic network between 1 March and 13 April.

“Sorry! Our online booking site is currently experiencing heavy traffic. Please try again later,” the SpiceJet website read. The Spicejet Android app was, however, working, reports Mint.

The airlines announced the sale on Monday. The three-day sale launched on Tuesday is supposed to remain open till midnight, 25 February.

This flash sale is offering nearly 50% discount on tickets to stimulate demand for the lean season.

A typical Mumbai-Kochi one-way ticket was available after paying all charges at Rs.2,300 under the pre-summer sale against a normal fare of Rs.3,500-Rs.4,000 on lower buckets, according to travel agents.
