The Wadia Group promoted budget carrier GoAir on Sunday said it has put 1.7 million seats up for sales, offering fares as low as Rs 1,469 for travel next year with a five day booking period starting on Sunday, to stimulate demand during the lean period.
According to the airline “The special offer is available on flights across the GoAir network for a travel period between January 1 and March 31”.

De Roni also said “GoAir is committed to offer the affordable fare that allows it to deliver a sustainable result. We can grow only when we are profitable and develop our network and the fleet. The airline wants to be consistent with its pricing strategy.”The Mumbai based airline operates across 22 destinations in the country with fleet of 19 airbus A320s.
