As the government-imposed fare limits are in place since domestic flights resumed operation on May 25, the aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Monday asked SpiceJet to stop its five-day discounted sale of tickets, PTI quoted senior officials as saying.
The DGCA referred to the government-imposed fare limits, and asked SpiceJet to stop the sale, the report said.
This came after SpiceJet announced ‘1+1’ offers with sale fares starting at Rs 899 early on Monday. The airline was also offering a complimentary flight voucher of up to Rs 2,000 along with other add-on offers. Bookings had opened and the offer was on a first-come-first-served basis. SpiceJet had said in a statement that the booking period was between August 3 and August 7 for the travel period till March 31, 2021.
