Mumbai: Joining the low-fare war triggered by budget carrier SpiceJet in January, full service carrier Jet Airways on Tuesday announced special fares as low as Rs 2,250 for a single journey across its domestic network. The airline has put 20 lakh seats on over 450 daily flights across 57 destinations on sale, for six days effective February 19 under the offer, a Jet press release said.

Passengers purchasing these tickets can travel anytime upto December-end this year. The airline has introduced four different slabs for these one-way fares, based on the travel distance and the fares are inclusive of all taxes, the release said.
