New Delhi, Oct 15 (IANS) Low-cost carrier SpiceJet Wednesday announced a cut in fares up to 15 percent on tickets purchased in advance, besides withdrawing congestion charges.The carrier, however, did not spell out how many days ahead a ticket has to be purchased to avail of the benefit.
In a statement, SpiceJet chief commercial officer Samyukth Sridharan said: “Fares on our network will be now significantly lower on advanced purchase. We have removed the congestion charge completely. With improved infrastructure available, we do not face this problem anymore. So we want to pass on the benefit to the customers.”
