Airlines have been announcing with slew of offers almost every other week in a bid to garner market share in a fiercely competitive environment.

Budget carrier GoAir had earlier announced a similar promotional offer for passengers flying on Tuesdays. The promotional offer, called 'Happy Tuesdays', is valid till October 13, 2015.
