go to Kochi!

I was on the hunt for what was originally the first journey of 2018! A ticket to travel to Kochi towards the end of February - and I was still in the first week of January 2018. Almost every airline offered tickets at Sale  prices. My favorite OTA listed Go Air as the cheapest. Go Air is a new entrant on the Bengaluru-Kochi Sector, a re-entry rather.

My ticket was booked through RedBus (for no particular reason) - and the mTicket popped up on WhatsApp in no time! February 03, 2018: I left my office after working half day, on an Uber cab towards Madiwala. Evacay, interestingly, starts its service from
