Bhatia said that under the new discount scheme, single one-way fare between Delhi and Mumbai or Mumbai and Chennai will work out at Rs.1,899 (excluding taxes). One way fare including taxes for these sectors will be Rs 2,999, while the complete fare including taxes for Mumbai-Kolkata will Rs 3,799.

The lowest fare of Rs.799 excluding taxes is only available on certain routes such as Delhi-Chandigarh, Mumbai-Goa, Bengaluru-Kochi, Madurai-Chennai, Jammu-Srinagar and Kolkata-Agartala.

The airline also announced it was offering 10 percent additional discount to passengers who will be booking using SpiceJet’s mobile App on Apples iOS and Android platforms.
