- Jet Airways' low fare offer started on June 7
- The airline did not disclose the number of seats under the offer
- The monsoon offer will now end on June 11
Jet Airways said the special scheme is applicable on flights operated by the carrier only, which means it is not applicable on codeshare and interline flights. The special fares are available on first-come-first-served basis.
Airlines have come up with discounted fares in the recent past, leading to high competition amid double-digit growth in passenger traffic. Domestic air passenger traffic rose 15.15 per cent to 91.34 lakh in April, data from aviation regulator DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) showed.
In another development, Naresh Goyal-promoted private carrier on Thursday has partnered with Mexican flag carrier Aeromexico for codeshare flights and frequent flyers programme. The two airlines have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to give effect to the partnership, Jet Airways said in a release.
As part of the arrangement, both carriers will code on each other's services between India and Mexico via common gates in Europe (London Heathrow, Paris Charles De Gaulle and Amsterdam).
Codesharing allows an airline to book its passengers on its partner carriers and provide seamless travel to destinations where it has no presence.
