Four other airlines have joined this war by offering economical air tickets in the domestic sector to counteract the latest offer of SpiceJet. Following the footprints of Go Air, IndiGo and Jet Airways, the national carrier of India – Air India also joined this war 3rd April.
Air India has announced this 3-day sale of discounted air tickets as Monsoon Bonanza that will end on the 5th of April 2014. Through this scheme, Air India flight tickets are available at a flat rate of Rs.1, 499 plus taxes. This offer is valid only for limited seats which are available on first-come-first-serve basis for bookings to be made during the given period.
