MUMBAI: For those who didn’t book early for Diwali holiday, low-cost airline Spice Jet launched a sale on Monday, which literally was a buy today, fly tomorrow offer. If you want to travel on Diwali days, then you might get a comparatively cheap ticket.

It’s one between non-metros that remain low even for a last-minute purchase,” he added.
