Jet Airways announces Republic Day sale starting Rs 999

Jet Airways has announced a Republic Day sale of air tickets, starting at Rs 999 on certain sectors.

The special fares are applicable on tickets booked between January 25 to 29 for select domestic routes and until January 27, 2017 for international travel from India on Jet Airways’ direct flights to London, Amsterdam, Paris and Toronto.

The sale is valid only on economy travel on domestic flights, but it includes both economy and business classes on international flights out of India.

While international tickets are valid for immediate travel, domestic ones will be valid for travel at least 15 days from the date of booking, it added.

Jet Airways’ guests flying to international destinations via its gateway at Abu Dhabi will enjoy special fares on both Economy and Premiere travel, via partner Etihad Airways. For those flying from Abu Dhabi to alternate global destinations via Etihad Airways, special fares can be availed for Premiere travel, the airline said.

Jet Airways and Air India have seen some of their market share lost to new entrants such as Indigo, Vistara, SpiceJet and GoAir in recent years. The latter are seen as more aggressive and efficient and offer cheaper prices.

The sale tickets, available on a first-come-first-served basis, will be valid for travel on direct flights for both onwards and return journeys on Jet Airways’ network.

The air tickets purchased as part of this sale will be non-refundable, though users can change their travel plans at an additional charge.
