Low Airfare Domestic Flights

Domestic flights at low fares

Plane tickets: Flugtickets ab GS 1,199: Low fares in rainy monsoons offers rates of up to 1,200 US rubles for domestic reservations until the end of June. The second largest carrier in the nation with the same metre, Jet Airways, has reduced domestic flights by 25% and tickets internationally by up to 30%. GoAir, the no-frills carrier, offers domestic rates of up to 1,199 USR.

"Monsoon seasons usually represent a slim period of travelling. Those tariffs will help boost tourism demand," said Sharat Dhall, Yatra.com website chairman. Airfare in India has long since escaped its seasonally and cyclically charged character thanks to airline aggressiveness in a highly contested and one of the most rapidly expanding markets in the globe.

Tariffs, on the other hand, will weigh on airlines' profit margin at a period when kerosene costs are soaring. "Soon, with increasing petrol costs, there will be a period when airline companies will have to hand them on," says Balu Ramachandran, manager of the aviation division at the Cleartrip tourist information site.

"It would be a good idea for clients to make their reservations now. Fifteen days' fare is still around 6,500 rupees on a daily basis. Courses are not restricted to domestic flights. Malaysian Airlines just completed a 72-hour sales run, with returns to Kuala Lumpur (subject to taxes) of Rupees 14,000 and B Class fare of Rupees 35,000.

FlyDubai, the low-cost airline, offers special fare of Rupees 32,000-36,000 for Oman and Tanzania. "At the beginning of the lease period, carriers offered reduced fares," said John Nair, heads of executive operations at Cox & Cings. "This is also the meager tourist seasons in these areas, and airline companies are trying to win the ever-growing India outdoor tourist market," Nair said.

"Travelers use their mini-breaks to benefit from low rates. Decreased tariffs are having an effect.
