Diwali offers are raining from the sky. Literally.
Spirit Air Private Limited, which restarted flights on Ranchi-Patna, Ranchi-Jamshedpur and Jamshedpur-Calcutta routes from October 17 after almost a year’s break only to get a tepid response, is now going all out to woo flyers during the festive season.
The non-scheduled airline, which has teamed up with Bangalore-based DTDS Travel and Tour Planner, has come up with special Diwali travel coupons for corporates and business houses that will slash one-way fares on a route by a maximum of around Rs 1,250 and minimum of Rs 650.
Touted as a Diwali goodie, the “super saver e-coupons” are a set of four flight tickets available at a discounted rate. The best part is that the tickets can be used for both to and fro trips to a particular destination by a single passenger or by four persons travelling together to the same place. As businessmen and corporates based in Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Patna and Calcutta keep travelling among these cities, the package is targetted at them.
“For example, our super saver pack for the Jamshedpur-Ranchi sector comes for only Rs 7,425, whereas the one-way regular fare is Rs 2,999. This means under this special package, a one-way ticket price will work out to only Rs 1,856,” said Shyamal Chakraborty, manager (Calcutta), DTDS Travel.
Spirit Air’s airport executive (security), Vishal Verma, added: “The coupon booklet is valid for 60 days from the date of issue. However, on special grounds, it can be extended for another 30 days by paying Rs 990 extra,” he said.
Moreover, it’s not mandatory for a company to use the tickets for only to and fro journeys. “It can also send four executives together to a particular destination using the four coupons,” Verma said.
The coupons are available on Spirit Air’s website and the airports at the respective cities till November 8.
