Are you looking to buy a cheap India flight this year?
You are in luck as prices have been dropping in the past few weeks. With many carriers fighting for market share, we have seen a wide variety of options used in the last week. From the Eastern part of Canada, the Middle East carriers Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways are all showing strong numbers, especially with travel outside the main cities of Mumbai (Bombay) and New Delhi. Customers who are looking to travel to second-tier cities like Cochin and Trivandrum from Canada prefer these carriers as they can connect internationally rather than take a domestic flight. These carriers provide a high level of service and they are offering cheap flights to India.
In addition, for those customers who want to fly to the capital of Delhi from Toronto the most popular carrier in the past few weeks has been British Airways. With a high level of service and a strong brand in the Indian community along with low ticket prices, they are taking a substantial amount of business. Customers looking for a cheap flight to India on either of the direct services from Toronto to Delhi on Air Canada and Air India are having to pay more right now, but that could change as we close in on the peak travel season for India.
For those travelling this September, there is still space available on direct flights as both Air India and Air Canada have the lowest prices in the market. Air India has flights available from $2169 while the Air Canada direct service from Toronto to New Delhi is less at $2156, but with Air India offering two free checked bags as compared to Air Canada only offering one, Air India is proving to be more popular. Overall, customers who waited until the last minute to book a cheap flight to India may be in luck as the demand for India flight tickets was not strong enough to pay the significant premium that was being asked for a few months back.
Passengers travelling from the West Coast of Canada are enjoying much better pricing than our friends out East. Due to the seat sale from Air India this September, those booking last-minute flights are enjoying the cheapest India flights of the year.
With a one-way ticket from Vancouver to Delhi starting from only $570 customers are flocking to buy the limited number of seats. The low outbound price is also allowing a customer to book cheap round-trip tickets to India as well and they are available for only $1850. Even with Air India providing such a great fare during September many other carriers are participating in the India flight season.
British Airways, KLM and Turkish Airways are all selling significant numbers of tickets for the fall and winter India travel season.
One new option that has become very popular in the last two weeks is Turkish Airways departing from Seattle. With prices as low as $1460, passengers are driving across the border from Vancouver to take this cheap India flight from Seattle. While the cost of gas and the extra time it takes to drive does have to be part of the decision-making process this flight is proving to be very popular, especially for those travelling in small family groups. One of the benefits of working with a Bains Travel advisor is that we know the creative solutions to find a cheap flight to India.
With the peak booking season for India flights now here, customers are looking for any option to save money while not inconveniencing them on their travel to India. Those clients who did wait and are booking at the last minute are finding some good deals as compared to those who booked months ago when the airlines had a better ability to charge more. As the busy season for booking India flights is now here there is still a good chance you will find a cheap flight to India!
