Many airlines have been announcing a flurry of promotional schemes for the monsoon season, which is typically a lean season for carriers. However, the promotional schemes announced by many airlines for the monsoon season have sparked a lot of interest for travel during the July-September season.
Lucrative offers and discounts are making off season travelling more popular as there was 27 per cent growth in airline searches for domestic destinations for this monsoon compared to the same period last year, according to online travel agency Cleartrip.
Recently, SpiceJet had come up with a promotional scheme offering Rs 799 tickets while IndiGo was offering flights starting at Rs 899.
Meanwhile, another budget carrier AirAsia India has announced a new scheme offering tickets from Rs 1,499. This AirAsia India offer ends on June 25, 2017 and is applicable on travel between June 9, 2017 and September 30, 2017.
