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.

Flight Ticket Booking Tips

With a number of airlines and routes available, the decision regarding the best flight to avail has become a tough task. Going through the offerings of each of them may take months; and passengers may still be clueless regarding the most economical one or the best on the basis of their preferences. However, this complex process can be simplified by following some simple suggestions given by experts. Flight ticket booking can be done in just few minutes, but the process to arrive on which one to booking can take hours, which is better than days and months. Following are the most followed tips, given by frequent travellers, which can lead first-time fliers or regular ones to the tickets they want to book.

Knowing Who Flies Where

The first step is getting names of the airlines on the routes people have to travel. People, who have already enjoyed air travel, may have certain preferences while first-time fliers can go through reviews of experiences on travel portals. They can short list the names of airlines after doing this bit of research, and then start analysing the services provided by them. Further, some of them can be taken out of the list in case they do not meet specific preferences. These details may include timing, in-flight amenities or on-time performance. After this, they can compare the cost of reservation.

There are a number of dedicated websites that compare the value of tickets offered by various airlines. Travellers can either take the help of these websites or can do the price check on their own. It can be simply done by getting the average of the deals and offers. People can arrive on the average by adding the cost of top 10 or 20 deals and then dividing it by the total number of deals. Those which are offered at prices lower than the arrived average can be considered for further comparison.

Payment with Credit or Debit Cards

After reaching at a number of 5 or 6, passengers can go through the terms and conditions of each airline regarding baggage allowance, taxes charged and other services. They can also check the in-flight amenities and the exclusion or inclusion of meals during the journey. People can opt for the one that gives maximum value for money. They can make payment with specific cards, as many banks give cash back or discounts. Apart from this, many airlines in association with different banks give relaxation on processing charge, which further reduces the cost.

Besides these, common facts like booking in advance, flying in the off season and carrying minimum luggage also help in saving money. Experts advise on making seat reservation with flights three or two months in advance to grab the most economical deals. Bookings during these time periods determine tickets at cheap prices, without any deal or discount. However, in case, it is an emergency travel plan, travellers can check IndiGo, GoAir or SpiceJet online booking as these low-cost carriers often announce new schemes and discount offers on a regular basis.
