Indigo is exploring the potential to launch low-cost long-haul flights, stepping up from their regional model of flying. And they’ve made a big bet in this regard. They want to buy the juicy chunks of Air India, the international operation and the profitable low-cost subsidiary called Air India Express.

Indigo is perhaps getting ready for the launch of a frequent flyer program for their flyers. This is not confirmed yet, but there is a great reason why now is a good time.
Indigo, the biggest Indian Airline, has just signed a deal with ATR to induct 50 ATR planes into their fleet. This signals that Indigo is willing to flex its muscle in the interiors of the country after putting massive frequencies on the big airports!
4 carriers are offering a sale across Indian destinations. Hop on and check out if you want to book a ticket or few. You could still be single and buy those tickets for one. Travel Period extends all the way to September 2017.
Indigo has launched a new promotion where they are offering vouchers worth INR 899 for just INR 99, as long as you book directly with them. This is a sweet deal if you are a regular Indigo flyer.
Indigo and SpiceJet are running some very nice sales for the next few months travel. Tickets are darn cheap and good enough to make me write about the deals. Have a look inside and see if something works for you! Act Fast!
There is a new wave of artists who are going about performing inside airports and airplanes. They call it #terminaljam. I call it public nuisance, to impose their art on those who cannot walk away from it.

Indigo has been at the forefront of monetising everything, including 500 grams excess baggage on hand which they’d not let inside the cabin. However, they’ve now worked out a new model on how to charge change/cancellation charges, which looks pretty reasonable to me. The move is towards rewarding early changes and cancellation by charging them lesser fees, and to penalise those who change/cancel at the last minute by charging them a higher fees. This is applicable for bookings made on or after April 1, 2015. For bookings made before April 1, 2015, the old rates continue to be charged, which is INR 1500 per change/cancellation on domestic bookings and INR 2000 per change/cancellation on international bookings. Personally, I don’t fly…
Indigo is promoting its mobile app with a unique promotion. If you book a flight by tomorrow (January 4, 2015) using the mobile app, Indigo will provide you with a free on-board vegetarian meal (usually a selection from their on-board menu of a sandwich/snack and a drink). Of course, as the promotion states, you need to make a booking at least twenty four hours prior to travels. I don’t see any other terms and conditions or promotional codes to be used. I’ve always loved Indigo for their funky meal packaging, and here is my last experience flying Indigo a few months ago.

As a part of the Google organised Great Online Sale Festival, Indigo is offering 15% discounts on base fare on all domestic and international flights. To get these discounts, you need to be booking a roundtrip, and use promotion code 6EGOSF to avail the discounts. The tickets can be booked between 10-12 December 2014, for travel between 15 January 2015 to 30 June 2015. Now, unlike with the Jet Airways’ discount, the Indigo discount is slightly more difficult to obtain. Firstly, the discount can only be applied to round trips, and on regular fares. Indigo also offers round-trip fares which are slightly discounted (called Return Fares). Secondly, your discount does not show up till you get on the payment page,…
I’ve always been a fan of the quirk factor of Indigo, however I don’t travel them much since I don’t get a cut of some sort from them (read a loyalty program). But other people I know don’t have any hangups flying Indigo, and that keeps me busy with their website at least. Which brings me to last night’s chance discovery. I had booked some tickets on Indigo, and I was doing seat assignments via the manage booking section on the website. One of the new features I could notice was the ability to send cake for someone on the flight. Basically, you will be able to add a 1/2 kg chocolate brownie cake, which can be delivered to your…
