Aircel launches ‘Big Friday Sale’ : Offers data, voice minutes at cheaper rates

Maxis owned Indian telecom operator, Aircel has now come up with an exclusive weekly offering called ‘Big Friday Sale’ for their prepaid customers offering data and other benefits at relatively lower prices.


Aircel has always made its users happy by offering value for money products. It has also launched products like Pocket Internet, Pocket Buddies, and One tariff for some southern states.

But in last few months, Aircel has lost a bit of its market share to bigger rivals due to their aggressive marketing and cheaper product strategy. The market will become even more competitive with launch of Reliance Jio’s services which would take place in a few weeks.

To counter its bigger rivals and gain in this highly competitive market, Aircel has now launched the weekly promotional segmented offers. Aircel customers can check those offers by dialing USSD *121*888# every Friday.

Under the “Big Friday Offer’, Aircel is offering more than full talktime, on net voice rate cutters, data packs and SMS bundles. Here are the some offers which Aircel is offering in Kolkata circle:

SMS Rs 42 250 L/N SMS

When contacted, Aircel executives were unable to furnish further details citing that they do not have much information regarding the offer.

If you’re an Aircel user, you can definitely check out the plans by dialling *121*888# for your number next Friday – you can also check out the plans by contacting customer care before making recharges.

The same is happening in the Tamilnadu circle. Till now they have not removed the Rs.112 SMS pack (which used to give 100 all India SMS per day for 90 days without any condition) from the SMS packs of the USSD menu *121# . The transaction will get failed regardless the method you use to recharge. Thank god !!!

Aircel is the only operator in India that does not post info about the SMS packs.
