 Spice jet CEO makes his airline penetrate to the heart of the market- SpiceJet sells two lakh discount tickets in one day

'The airlines thought that instead of flying with empty seats it’s better to have them full.'
Chennai, Jan 12 (TruthDive): SpiceJet sold two lakh tickets on Friday as it offered a consolidated Rs. 2,013 fare, including all taxes, on its routes from February to April 31.
SpiceJet announced on Friday that one million one-way tickets were available from yesterday till Sunday for Rs. 2,013 on all the domestic routes it flew.
The current fares of the airlines on the New Delhi-Mumbai or New Delhi-Howrah would be less than an AC-II or AC–Ist class railway journey.
India’s largest low-cost airline, IndiGo reduced its fares on routes like Mumbai-Delhi, Mumbai-Bangalore to Rs 2,000 for February. IndiGo maintained that the reduction was in line with the market.
The reduction by SpiceJet fare is 50-60 per cent lower than the normal average price and accounts for 20% of its three-month sales. SpiceJet sells around 45000 seats a day.
With most of the bookings done online, there was a slowdown. The company limited people from logging in simultaneously so that the site did not crash.
SpiceJet CEO Neil Mills said that from February to April it was a low earnings period and they had to struggle to get 75% payload which they get now while Indigo was getting 80%. The airlines thought that instead of flying with empty seats it’s better to have them full.

Future of oil is bleak. By 2030, 95% of people may not own private cars which would wipe off the automobile industry

A futurist and clean energy expert, Toni Seba, has predicted that electric vehicles would destroy the global oil industry after a decade. By 2030, 95% of people won't own private cars which would wipe off the automobile industry, he says.

Boeing and JetBlue Airways have announced they would begin selling a hybrid-electric commuter aircraft by 2022. Planned by start-up Zunum Aero, the small plane would seat up to 12 passengers and reduce travel time and cost of trips under 1,600 km.

PPF interest rate cut to 7.9% but are other investment options better? Here's a comparison

"This is quite impressive for an option that offers assured returns," says Amol Joshi, Founder, PlanRupee Investment Service. "Investors should continue to take advantage of this long-term tax-free product," he adds. 

Even if you compare the PPF rate with the 10-year government bond yield, the scheme is attractive. "The 10-year bond yield is a better benchmark for PPF than consumer inflation," says Manoj Nagpal, CEO, Outlook Asia Capital
