Budget carrier IndiGo on Monday announced its flash sale of 10 lakh promotional seats for all-inclusive fares starting for just Rs.999 (one-way trip) across its flight network. The four-day sale will be effective for a limited period travel between September 18, 2018 and March 30, 2019. The four-day flash sale will begin from Monday.
The Gurugram-headquartered airline has also announced to offer super cash back of up to Rs 600 on booking the ticket through mobile wallet provider MobiKwik under the promotional offer, according to a company release.
"We are delighted to announce this four-day festive sale across our network, effective from September 3 till September 6, 2018. We are sure customers will quickly grab the seats we have available, starting at fares as low as Rs 999," IndiGo's chief commercial officer William Boulter said.
This is the second time that the IndiGo Airlines announced such a flash sale after a similar offer issued in July this year. Airlines’ June quarter profitability nearly got wiped out over the period year ago and thus, has decided to put a million seats up for grabs at cheaper ticket fares.
The Rakesh Gangwal-Rahul Bhatia-promoted InterGlobe Aviation, which runs IndiGo, had reported a steep 96.6 per cent fall in net profit to Rs 27.8 crore in the June quarter, owing to adverse impact of foreign exchange and high fuel prices, as compared to Rs 811 crore in Q1FY18.
Currently, IndiGo operates over 1100 flights per day to 52 destinations with a fleet of 160 aircraft planes.
