Low-cost carriers in India might soon offer direct international flights at insanely cheap prices.
Yes, 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, reported The Times of India.
