Dubai: Indian low fare carrier, IndiGo, the second biggest in the country, launched its inaugural Delhi-Dubai international service ferrying 162 passengers to the Emirate sheikhdom on 1 September. The international service has been launched with a bumper promotional gimmick.
The airline has offered record low round-trip airfare of Dh816 for the first 25,000 seats on the Delhi-Dubai route.
"We promise the best on-time performance, consistently low fares and a generally hassle-free travel experience," said Aditya Ghosh, IndiGo airline president said on the occasion.
IndiGo uses a successful model of having a fleet that is composed almost entirely of a single aircraft type, short-distance travel routes, which allow quick turnaround times.
IndiGo's inaugural international flight also carried the consul-general of India in Dubai, Sanjay Verma, on board its outbound leg.
''In the long run, promotional gimmicks cannot pull in a dedicated client base. We promise the best on-time performance, consistently low fares and a generally hassle-free travel experience. That's our core philosophy,'' Ghosh said.
