The all-inclusive fare under the Rs. 999 Vistara offer is applicable only on economy class travel. And the Rs. 2,099 offer can be availed in Premium economy. The first-come-first-served offer is valid on direct flights.
Discounted fares under this are non-refundable and not applicable on group and Infant bookings. In case the seats under this offer are sold out, regular fares will appear, the airline stated on its website.
Vistara had recently slashed its business class fares by a flat 50 percent under ‘Affordable Luxury’ sale.
This offer comes days after the budget carriers like GoAir, Spice Jet, Indigo and Air Asia India have announced special fares starting Rs. 599, Rs. 849, Rs. 899 and Rs. 1,031 respectively.
India’s aviation sector has witnessed a spurt of growth in the past few years and discounted fares from airlines have been one of the reasons behind strong growth seen in domestic air travel.
