Air Tickets

A growing number of airline providers and better availability of budget domestic airfares has increased the popularity of air travel. In fact, in the 1990s, airline traffic witnessed a major growth and this growth was also reflected in the sector of domestic providers. As competition continues to grow amongst private airlines, it is the traveller who eventually walks away with the benefits. They can now choose airlines offering plum deals and best services.
As the number of domestic airline companies increased, flight fares nosedived. Yet another contributing factor to the growing popularity of air travel has been the convenience of online services offered by all airlines where travellers can not only make online reservations but also check online flight positions. Apart from this, services such as e-Check-in, online ticket cancellation, online flight enquiry and online departure and arrival status check have made air travel hassle free to a large extent. Air Deccan, the pioneer low cost airlines in India created a whole new market. The low fare war intensified with more airlines like GoAir, IndiGo, Sahara Airlines, SpiceJet and Jet Airways Konnect jumping into the fray. Ups and downs in the mêlée where Kingfisher merged with Air Deccan and Jet Airways acquired Sahara Airlines (rechristened JetLite), proved to be beneficial to all travellers. With Air India launching its international low cost service Air India Express, things have only gotten better.
One simply needs to sift through the Internet for bagging cheap flight tickets as there are quite a few good deals available online. Travellers largely prefer to make online bookings as it saves a lot of time, energy, and money. In fact, online fares are getting more and more competitive with the passage of time. A tip here. Travellers, who are very sure of their itinerary should book the less flexible flight schedule tickets. These tickets work out to be much cheaper than the flexible itinerary tickets. However, one may end up paying more if any alterations are done on these restricted fares. With airline revenue managers involved in cutthroat competition, there is a lot of variation in flight fares. This just means that on finding the right fares, one should book as early as possible. Besides, the fare alert tool is always there for help. (Caveat: Once in a while, a last minute distressed inventory can very well be cheaper).
While airlines are usually categorised as "low cost" or "full service", it would be wrong to assume that a particular airline will always have lower fares than others. One should always search and compare fares offered by various airlines before booking. If you are in the initial stages of planning a trip and can afford to be flexible about the date and time of travel then you can save quite a bit of money this way. Prices of tickets vary considerably depending on the time and date of travel, so use it to your advantage. Flexibility in the choice of airport where you board or get off can be another factor that can prove useful in sourcing cheap air tickets.
If you are a real price warrior, then you can look for "red-eye flights" or flights with long layovers. Airlines are always willing to offer deep discounts to fill flights with inconvenient departure times and layovers that you can avail quite easily.
Workable knowledge of the internet is all you need to check the availability of tickets and rates. Don’t let the deluge of travel sites confuse or misguide you.
