Mumbai: Escalating the fare war further, GoAir, run by Wadia Group’s Go Airlines (India) Ltd, cut fares by more than half for bookings from 22-25 August to lure passengers.

The offer, the airline claimed, that it will allow flyers to purchase tickets at a starting fare of Rs999 will be open for 22-25 August for travel between 15 September and 31 March 2016.

The offer is applicable on base fare only, and taxes and surcharges will be applicable, the airline said.

GoAir, in a statement, said its special offer is for the upcoming festive season. Generally, airlines offer promotional fares or flash sales to woo passengers in the lean season. But this offer is for peak season.

The peak season, that runs between October and February, coincides with festivals Diwali, Navratri, Dussehra and Christmas, as also an influx of international tourists flocking to India in the winter season.

GoAir offer comes at a time when rival airline SpiceJet Ltd is concluding its three-day flash sale of air fare starting Rs 799 (excluding taxes) offering 1 lakh seats on Saturday.
