Dubai, Oct 7:
Airlines operating from Oman to Indian destinations have drastically slashed fares, but there are few takers since the offer period comes during the off-season.

The fares to south Indian destinations such as Kochi, Chennai, Thiruvananthapuram and Hyderabad currently including taxes are over Rs 7,300 (one way) and over Rs 12,400 (return). Fares including taxes to Mumbai and Delhi are at a low of over Rs 6, 800 (o ne way) and over Rs 11,000 (return).

Not only is the response is dull, but there is an apparent confusion in the market ever since these fares have been featured, travel agents said. "These new fares are being featured at a time when it is of no use to the traveling public.

The travel validity is only for a short period, there are blackout periods for travel and the airlines have forgotten that the passengers would like to travel during the impending holidays, not before (or after) that," a travel agent said.
