Christmas discounts on air travel
Christmas holidays are a little over a month away and many airlines have launched their offers and savings for domestic and international destinations. Book now for the best deal.
In anticipation of the Christmas and New Year holidays, airlines have launched discounts and offers. The Diwali season was completely devoid of such deals, as airlines raised airfares to cash in on rising demand during the festive period. According to reports, their hopes were dashed, as Indians travelled even less than they did during the festive season in 2012. With the end-of-year celebrations, it, therefore, seems, they’re taking no chances. Many airlines are offering discounts on specific destinations, couple tickets and concessional airfares on all travel routes. Here’s what’s on offer:
The airline is offering discounts on multiple bookings to any destination in India. You can get a discount of 20% on the base fare if you book two tickets. For three and more tickets, a flat 25% discount is being offered on the base fare. Bookings have to be made before November 30 and your travel can be anytime before March 31, 2014. To avail this offer, tickets have to be booked seven days prior to your departure.
Till December 31, GoAir will offer fares as low as up to 50% to your favourite holiday destinations for all passengers. A family of three and more can get discounts ranging from 20% to 30% on the base fare as well.
