New Delhi, 28 May Domestic air travel is going to be expensive. The government has increased the airline fare limit from 13 to 16 percent. This was stated in an official order issued by the Ministry of Civil Aviation on Friday. This increase in airfare will be effective from June 1.
Higher air fares have already been set. The government’s move will help airlines. The second wave of the Covid-19 caused a huge drop in the number of passengers on the plane, which reduced their revenue.
The lower and upper limits of air travel in the country were determined on the basis of the duration of the flight. The limit was set when the two-month lockdown opened on May 25 last year. An official order issued by the Ministry of Civil Aviation on Friday said that the minimum limit for 40-minute flights has been raised from Rs 2,300 to Rs 2,600 – an increase of 13 per cent. Similarly, for flight durations of 40 minutes to 60 minutes, the lower fare limit will now be Rs 3,300 per person instead of Rs 2,900.
