Just got this via an email from 9W:
You can now travel on our Delhi-London-Delhi sector for just Rs 18,000 and on our Mumbai-London-Mumbai sector for Rs 20,000.
What’s more, you can also enjoy a special fare of Rs 22,000 for return travel to London from Ahmedabad, Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Jaipur, Lucknow, Vadodara, Chandigarh, Srinagar or Indore via Delhi.
And that’s not all, for just Rs 24,000 you can get a return ticket to London from Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Pune, Kolkata, Bhopal, Indore, Nagpur, Rajkot, Goa, Aurangabad, Bhavnagar, Udaipur, Mangalore, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Kochi, Thiruvanthapuram, Coimbatore, Calicut via Mumbai.
This is a limited time offer. You need to purchase your ticket before January 15, 2006 and travel between January 15, and March 31, 2006.
And from the T&Cs on their page - you can issue an open return ticket, and the coupons are valid for a year.
This works out to about £275 + TAX for a return ticket on the LHR-DEL-BLR sector. Contrast this to the normal economy fare of £275 just for the domestic DEL-BLR return. They seem to be giving away the international LHR-DEL at no charge!
I can certainly imagine S2 coming out with an even better fare - given their tendency to aggressively price in comparison to 9W.
Good luck to all the players on the India - LHR sector. And wonderful news to all the pax on this sector!
