A day after SpiceJet announced a fresh sale of tickets for tier 2 cities, IndiGo the country's largest airline by passenger market share, has announced its own discounted fare offer. For bookings till May 17th2014, IndiGo is offering one-way tickets starting at Rs 1,407 for flights on select sectors between July 1 and September 24.

Key routes available under the discount offer are Jammu-Srinagar (Rs 1,407), Mumbai-Ahmedabad (Rs 1,880), Chennai-Bengaluru (Rs 1,593), Jaipur-Mumbai (Rs 2,325) and Chennai- Hyderabad (Rs 1,908).

On Thursday, SpiceJet had announced a three-day sale of one-way tickets booked from Tier II cities in the Northern and Eastern part of the country starting at Rs 1,899 and going up to Rs 2,299.

Since January, SpiceJet has announced over seven such discount offers, many of which have been followed by similar discounts from IndiGo, Air India and GoAir. Incidentally, in March the aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation had pulled SpiceJet for offering select few seats at Re 1, calling the move predatory pricing and harmful for the industry.
