AirAsia offer on international routes
The promotional sale from AirAsia India comes at a time airlines operating in the Indian sector are witnessing high competition on the back of robust passenger traffic growth.

Recently, a global airline association said that the country's domestic passenger traffic grew by 16 per cent in the month of August.
"Indian airlines achieved a 36th consecutive month of double-digit traffic growth as demand rose 16 per cent," the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said in its global passenger traffic data.
"Traffic continues to be stimulated by sizeable increases in the number of domestic routes served," IATA added.
