Low-cost Airline Businesses in India Adopt Strange Gimmicks

Patna, Bihar, 20 Aug 2021, ZEXPRWIRE, The first low-cost airline in India – Air Deccan – paved the way for low-cost air travel in India in 2003 and brought air travel within the reach of the common middle class comprising well over half of the country’s 1.3 billion population.

Two of India’s LCC airlines – SpiceJet and IndiGo – keep offering their customers new ways of attractions. It is a different story, though, not even 5% of India’s population opt for flying as a travel option.

Spicejet, the low-cost airline, has come up with a new SME High Flyer Program. It is targeted at small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Spicejet claims that the program gives exciting benefits and Add-Ons to help SMEs fly to new heights. Its buzzword is – ‘The more you fly, the more you save’.

As per Spicejet, SME High Flyer Program comes with such features like:

  • Assured Discounts on Fares
  • Zero Change Fee
  • Complimentary Snack and Beverage
  • 50% Off on Cancellation Fee
  • Zero Convenience Fee
  • 50% Off on You1st
  • 20% Off on Spice Max and Preferred Seats

IndiGo’s latest offer has been – ‘Book using your Ka-ching credit card and get a flat ₹ 25,000 cashback as 6E Rewards on your stay at the Raffles Hotel, Udaipur.’

Features of IndiGo’s Offer

  • Offer Period: 9th August 2021 to 10th September 2021
  • Members must spend at least two nights stay at the Raffles Hotel, Udaipur
  • Booking must be through All Accor
  • Payment has to be done through a Co-branded Card.
  • Bonus Rewards under the Offer will be credited to the Membership Account after 60 days of the payment.
  • During the Offer Period, Members may earn up to 25,000 Bonus 6E Rewards as cashback on 1 night’s room charge in case of a minimum 2 night’s stay at Raffles paid for by the Members through a Co-branded Card.

For your info, the price for 2 nights, 2 adults at the Raffles Udaipur would be:
₹ 65000 (a 667 square feet room)
₹ 132000 (a 1291 square feet suite)

Raffles Hotel, Udaipur is not a “Low-cost Hotel”.

A few puzzling questions amaze the observer.

  • Will a normal air traveller who books an air ticket for ₹ 4000-5000, will ever think of staying in a ₹ 32,000 per night room?
  • Will a person who pays ₹ 66,000 per night for a hotel suite will like to fly in a cramped seat of a low-cost airline?

No wonder then, both Spicejet and IndiGo leave their shareholders in the lurch. While IndiGo reported a massive loss of ₹ 27,000 million in the June 2021 quarter, Spicejet is immersed deep in a pile of debt.

The operational strategies adopted by budget/low-cost carriers in the aviation sector in India seem to be not coming up with the desired results. For the IndiGo think tank, this includes certain B2B ventures like linking with the businesses of some third parties like car rentals, saloons, medicines, or merchandise.
