Soon fly to Europe at Rs. 12,000 only

Low-cost carriers in India might soon offer direct international flights at insanely cheap prices.

Yes, there is a chance that you may not have to dig deep into your pockets to book a ticket to Europe. For, Indian low-cost carriers (LCCs), along with a few foreign airlines, are offering international tickets to Europe, at a much cheaper rate than before.

Indian LCCs like SpiceJet and IndiGo are likely to begin long-haul international flights very soon. Else, Scoot, a Singapore Airlines’ subsidiary, might avail its ”fifth freedom” rights, that allows a carrier to operate direct flights between two foreign countries, to fly between India and Europe. Scoot’s lowest fare for a one-way trip would be between Rs 12,000 and Rs 13,000, including the cost of a 20 kg check-in baggage and a meal.

Currently, the lowest fares on direct flights between India and Europe start at around Rs. 45,000. On the other hand, SpiceJet and IndiGo are likely to launch their first European long-haul flight to London-Gatwick. The demand for long-haul, low-cost flights has only been increasing over time, which is being met with due supply. “The long-haul, low-cost sector has just surpassed 5,00,000 weekly seats (globally) for the first time,” mentioned a May-June 2017 report by Centre for Asia Pacific (CAPA).

Some of the international airlines like Norwegian Air, International Airlines Groups, among others, are also eyeing India for being a lucrative market. “We can see long-haul, low-cost operations gaining ground from next fiscal with Indian LCCs driving growth,” said Kapil Kaul of CAPA, suggesting the possibility of creating a new market segment for the same.
