Tourists who want to visit places like Charminar, Hussain Sagar, Ramoji Film City or Jama Masjid can opt for any of 120 flight ticket booking options available between Delhi and this city. Apart from these old monuments, this place is also known for Deccan Festival, falling in the last week of February. This city is a biotechnology and information technology (IT) hub along with housing the headquarters of many popular firms and industries; hence attracts the traffic of business travellers too. It takes around two to three hours in order to reach this IT hub from the national capital. Services on this network are provided by SpiceJet, IndiGo and Air India, and flights usually take off from Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport of New Delhi. The earliest one leaves from Hyderabad at 6 am and takes approximately two hours and 10 minutes to reach Delhi, at 8:10. Whereas, the last one leaves the same airport at 8:15 pm, reaching at around 10:15 pm. However, with the onset of new carriers like AirAsia, the schedule has undergone many changes, and new flights are continuously added to meet demands.

When to Make Reservations

People in India do not miss any opportunity to celebrate; hence calendars are dotted with festivals in every other month. However, because of cultural diversity and geographical conditions, different regions have their own peak festive periods. Experts advise on avoiding bookings on these days as it can prove to be a costly affair. In case of Hyderabad, months between December to March can be avoided because of Christmas, New Year and Deccan Festival, when the traffic is quite high. Apart from this, people can follow changes in the air fare by subscribing to travel portals, and grab cheap deals as soon as they are rolled out.

Smoother Journey

Carrying a well organised and slim bag always helps in quick check-in process. It not only gets through the security in comparatively lesser time, but is also easy to carry from one terminal to another. Experts advise on keeping limited and essential things in cabin baggage like re-sealable bags of liquids or properly packed meals to avoid chaos. In addition to this, keeping in mind the terms and conditions regarding baggage allowance of the carrier contributes towards a hassle-free journey.

Significant Increase in SpiceJet Flight Booking

As per latest reports, a significant increase in the load factor of all low-cost carriers has been observed in the last few months. The Sun Group-owned airline – SpiceJet – has recorded more than 85 per cent flight occupancy in the month of September. Flights to Hyderabad, Mumbai, Delhi as well as Tier II cities were almost fully loaded in the studied month. This LCC carried around 4.9 crore people this year. It caters to more than 49 destinations by operating over 300 flights every day. Most of the flights are managed from its primary hub and monitored from the corporate office in Gurgaon. These destinations include domestic as well as international ones. It has a fleet size of over 50 aircraft, including latest models manufactured like Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 and Boeing 737 Next Generation. The airline gained over two per cent market share this year and is behind IndiGo only in the ranking list. However, it has surpassed the leading carrier in terms of flight occupancy.

The latest report gives out a similar picture; IndiGo still leads the market with over 32 per cent shares, followed by SpiceJet (as far as LCCs are concerned). As per reports, because of low-cost fares offered by SpiceJet, the Indian aviation industry saw topsy-turvy curves. The capacity addition and sales announced by the airline operating under the Sun Group attracted fair share of fliers. As a result more deals were offered by most carriers leading to a fare war in the market, which benefitted both – passengers and airlines. This is the reason that almost all carriers operating in the country reported higher load factor during September as per the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) data.

Apart from record breaking SpiceJet flight booking, GoAir and JetLite also surpassed the 80 per cent benchmark. Industry watchers are of the opinion that those carriers, which manage to fill 400 (or more than that) seats out of 500 usually post profits in their financial books. However, it is not necessary in case of sales as prices are lower than normal, which in turn may affect the revenue structure. Even if it does not report profit, the operating cost is usually recovered, creating a breakeven point – where no loss or profit is registered.
