The Air Asia impact is showing, and all the airlines are reacting in their own possible manner. After Air Asia put out INR 500 tickets to Chennai and Goa from Bangalore, SpiceJet and Indigo lowered prices on the same routes, and Jet Airways is now offering double base miles on these routes if you fly between June 16 and July 15, 2014.
Here are the salient Terms & Conditions you should know about:
This offer is valid for travel taken on direct Jet Airways / JetKonnect flights on the above mentioned routes.
Applicable for travel in Economy.
Offer is valid for travel taken between June 16, 2014 and July 15, 2014 (both days inclusive).
Double of the Base JPMiles will be credited for travel taken on the above mentioned sector during the offer period.
Double Base JPMiles will be credited into the JetPrivilege account of the member undertaking the travel. Relevant JPMiles will be credited post travel taken and not on booking.
I know of at least one person who is based in Goa and could milk this promotion, but if you are a frequent traveller to any of these cities from Bangalore, you could sure join in the fun, though of course, if you are the lucky few who have INR 500 Air Asia tickets, then the extra few miles are not worth it.
