Flights to India to get cheaper
The Indian Government recently approved two other carriers, Jet Airways and Sahara Airlines to run flights between US and India. This below comes from the Times of India...
Senior government officials told The Times of India that Jet Airways has been granted the approval to start a daily flight from Mumbai to Newark (via Brussels) in the 2005 summer schedule.
With these new entries, the price of the ticket is bound to come down significantly. Right now, if you buy a ticket from a consolidator, the ticket prices range from USD 800 during off season to USD 1500 during peak season. A 10-15% price drop would mean a significant savings for travellers on this already busy route.
