IA special fares for 7 stations

Hidayathullah, YaHind News, Dubai

TO CASH in on early-bookings in run-up to the summer rush Indian Airlines (IA) has offered 12,800 seats on its discounted fares to seven Indian stations, including the three Kerala airports.

The Advance Purchase Excursion (Apex) fares to Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram, Kozhikode, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Chennai are now available for bookings, said Aloke Singh, the airline's country manager.


The special fares will be valid for tickets for travel from June 1 to July 31 on condition that they are bought before March 31.


"The discount is substantial and the peak season return fare to Kochi and Kozhikode would be Dhs1,800 plus taxes while the Chennai fare will be Dhs1,400," Singh said.


The peak-of-peak summer fare to Kochi and Kozhikode would be Dhs2,300 plus taxes of Dhs480.


"If you consider the savings, a family of four travelling to Kochi during the offer period will save Dhs2,000," he added.


This is besides the add-on fares to South-East Asia which fetches an extension from an Indian gateway to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok for Dhs600 each. "It is common for expatriates to build in short breaks in their summer vacations and these offers come at a great bargain," he said.


The airline has over the years offered Summer Saver fares, especially to the southern Indian and some of the busy northern sectors. "Expatriates who are planning their vacation usually utilise these fares that bring in significant savings," he said.


The peak-of-peak period that runs for approximately two weeks from a couple of days before schools close for the two-month long summer break is the costliest season for air travellers from the Gulf to India.


Gearing up to meet what would certainly be another busy summer season, the airline could induct additional flights. "Although we have no such plans now, as in the previous years we might get additional flights to clear the rush," Singh said.
