The launch of the discount offer is on the back of the carrier's new network which the company seeks to introduce via the offering. So, the offer is applicable only for flights on the company's new network. Also, with the discount offer, the cash-strapped carrier is expected to mop up some cash, and more so in such a scenario, more and more customers will opt for air travel over rail transport.
The limited seats under the scheme are available on a first-come-first-serve basis and can be availed through either the company's website www.spicejet.com or via travel agents and travel portals.
Other than the Rs. 1 base fare, company has also announced discounts on other flights depending on the travel date and the flight. Soon, after the announcement of the hefty discount on air fare, website of the company was down due to heavy traffic.
