MALAYSIA-based airline AirAsia has announced it is offering one-way plane tickets in India at the very low expense of Rs 99, which equates to around US$1.52.

Being early often pays off, but this deal is on a whole different level of budget traveling.

The mega-cheap tickets are for travelers flying across the Indian JV airline network. But for those wishing to go a little further afield, AirAsia is offering international flights for as little as $7, or Rs 444.

But be quick – the availability for booking these discounted tickets is only being offered until November 19.

However, as the travel period for these tickets runs from May 2018 to January 2019, it may be wise to plan far, far ahead, even if you are not entirely sure you will be needing them.

The flights will cover domestic destinations connected by AirAsia India, such as Bengaluru, Kochi, Hyderabad, Goa and Delhi among many others.

If all that was not appealing enough in itself, the cheap international flights are available to Kuala Lumpur from Tiruchirappalli, Kochi, Delhi, Bhubaneswar and Jaipur; to Bali from Mumbai and Kolkata; and to Bangkok from Jaipur, Kolkata, Kochi, Chennai and Bengaluru.


And to round it all off, AirAsia is erasing the base fare for seats for passengers flying to Kolkata from Johor Bahru in Malaysia, so the only charge incurred will be the taxes.

Your whole trip could quite literally be as cheap as chips. We checked – and, depending on what brand you buy, your plane ride could end up being cheaper than the snacks you consume on board.
