Individuals planning to avail the AirAsia offer can book air-tickets until November 18 for travel between May 6 2019, and February 4, 2020. The one-way air tickets to domestic destinations are priced as low as Rs. 399 while for international destinations the airfare starts at Rs. 1,999.

Across the country, Air Asia’s low-airfare offer is valid for flights to Bagdogra, Bengaluru, Bhubaneswar, Goa, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Imphal, Indore, Jaipur, Kochi, Kolkata, New Delhi, Pune, Ranchi, Srinagar and Visakhapatnam. The airline flies to as many as 21 destinations across India.

Another budget carrier GoAir has put 13 lakh seats up for grabs in its latest discount offer, selling flight tickets from Rs 1,313 (all inclusive). GoAir’s offer ends on 18 November. The travel period for GoAir’s latest Rs 1,313 offer is applicable for travel till 4 November 2019.

Spurred by frequent discounted offers from the airlines, the Indian aviation market has seen strong growth. Passengers carried by domestic airlines in the first nine months of the year were up to 10.27 crore, registering a growth rate of 21%. However, slammed by rising operating costs caused mainly by high jet fuel prices, a weak rupee and aggressive competition, Indian airlines may post their steepest loss in a decade this financial year, according to Crisil Ratings. “At an estimated Rs 9,300 crore, the industry’s losses at EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) level would surpass the Rs 7,348 crore blow it was dealt with in 2013-14,” the rating firm said in a recent report.
