Maran-owned SpiceJet has shelled out several discounts, which eventually led to a price wars among airlines, since the beginning of the year. The airline had earlier defended its stand to roll out discounts on the ground that the offers have ‘helped revenue performance and as well helped stimulate the travel industry and wider economy as a whole.’
“These promotions have been launched by an expert team that is well-versed in LCC revenue and capacity management, and after analyzing the current consumer purchasing profiles and behaviors. These highly fenced and targeted are the best practices of all successful low cost airlines in the world. India is no different in terms of how the market reacts to price stimulation,” the airline’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) Sanjiv Kapoor had earlier said in a statement.
However, the demand for seats generated by rolling out such discounts, over ten since January 1, may not offer any respite to Spice Jet from posting large annual loss for the previous fiscal.
Aviation consultancy firm Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA) had earlier, in a February report, predicted that three Indian carriers – Air India, SpiceJet and Jet Airways – would post combined losses in excess of $1.2 billion (Rs 7,430 crore) in financial year 2014 (FY14), with Jet Airways and SpiceJet likely to report record full-year losses.
