You can fly to India from the UK for just Rs 12000

No, we are not kidding. Singapore based low-cost airline Scoot, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines,  which operates direct flights between India and Europe, will soon offer fares as low as Rs 12,000 for a one-way trip. 

Scoot's lowest fare bucket for a one-way trip would be between Rs 12,000 and Rs 13,000, which includes the cost of a 20kg check-in bag and a meal. Currently, the lowest fares on direct flights between India and Europe is at around Rs 45,000. 

Bharath Mahadevan, head of Scoot in India, is reported to have said,  "since we have fifth freedom, we can operate direct flights from Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata to destinations like Copenhagen, Vienna, Cairo and Manchester." The "fifth freedom" permits a carrier to operate direct flights between two foreign countries.

Will this bring about a price war in the sector? We will keep you posted.
