Gurgaon, 11th February, 2015: SpiceJet, the airline that has made flying more affordable for more Indians than ever before, today announced the launch of the ‘Cheaper Than Train Fares’ sale with one-way fares starting at just Rs. 599 all-inclusive for domestic flights. This offer is also available for international flights (except Colombo, Kabul and Dubai-Ahmedabad-Dubai sectors), at fares starting at just Rs. 3,499 all-in.

Bookings under this latest offer are open now and will close at midnight on February 13, 2015. The travel period covered in this sale is from July 1, 2015 to October 24, 2015.

Under this offer, tickets on routes like Hyderabad to Vijayawada, Delhi to Dehradun, Guwahati to Kolkata, Ahmedabad to Mumbai, and Bangalore to Hyderabad all are priced at Rs. 599 only. International flights start as low as Rs 3,499 all-in for Delhi to Kathmandu, with discounted fares available on most other international routes too. A total of 400,000 seats are for sale under this offer, of which 100,000 are at the rock-bottom Rs 599 all-in fare.

“We are thrilled to continue to make air travel more affordable and accessible for more Indians than ever before, with our new unbelievable offer: the ‘Cheaper Than Train Fares’ sale. Fares for this offer are lower than AC train fares on many routes, and cheaper than non-AC sleeper class trains on several routes. And this time we are including most of our international flights in this offer too! So hurry book your tickets now if you want to travel fast and travel cheap….cheaper than train travel!” said Kaneswaran Avili, Chief Commercial Officer, SpiceJet Ltd.

“At SpiceJet we believe that flying empty seats, which are the ultimate perishable commodity, is a crime, and the best way to fill seats that would otherwise go empty is to sell them well in advance at highly attractive rates, often lower than train fares, to those who are willing to plan and book early in exchange for fantastic deals”, said Sanjiv Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer, SpiceJet Ltd. “These are seats that would otherwise go empty and be lost forever, and are priced based on the marginal cost of carrying an extra passenger, not on the average cost. Revenues from such offers contribute incremental revenue for the airline that flows directly to the bottom line”, he added.

Tickets for this new sale can be booked on, on online travel portals, and through travel agents. Tickets under this offer are non-changeable and non-refundable (taxes and fees are refundable).

SpiceJet recently announced a new enhanced schedule with improved metro to metro connectivity, attractive day return options, enhanced non-metro connections and better timings. The network and schedule will be further enhanced in the Summer Schedule starting March 29, 2015.

Since there is limited inventory under the offer, it will be available on First-Come-First-Served basis and is not applicable on group bookings. Fares vary from sector to sector depending on the travel distance and flight schedules and timings are subject to regulatory approvals and change(s).
