There are some destinations that are forever on our bucket list, with every intention to travel there one day, and then there are those that we travel to spontaneously, thanks to a great deal on airfare. Now India is on both lists, as one specific airline is cutting their fares to offer €150 flights out of Europe.
Beginning next year, Scoot, a carrier operating as part of Singapore Airlines, will run direct flights from Manchester, Copenhagen, and Vienna to Delhi, Chennai, and Kolkata. One way fares will be available from €150 with return flights priced around €310 to include a 20kg checked bag and a meal. Should you choose to stop in the Middle East, your airfare would drop even lower, adding an extra incentive to explore another spontaneous city on the fly.
Other airlines eyeing routes between Europe and India include SpiceJet and IndiGo — though they're looking at departing out of London Gatwick, which Scoot is avoiding thanks to competition with parent company, Singapore Airlines. Considering Gatwick's airport fees are much higher than those in other cities, however, that's probably in our best interest to keep these prices low.
Before you leave Europe, make sure you spend some time in Italy.
