Aviation Ministry sets Limits on Air Fares in 7 Bands
GUWAHATI: India is set to recommence flights with effect from May 25, 2020 in a calibrated manner.
To ensure that the airlines do not charge excessive fare and that journeys are performed only for necessary purposes, the civil aviation ministry has set fixed bandwidth for fare charges.
Limits on air fares for flights have been set in seven bands. Each band has its specific lower and upper limits of air fare.
The first band consists of flights that are of less than 40 minutes' duration. The subsequent bands from the second to the seventh will be of flights with durations of 40-60 minutes, 60-90 minutes, 90-120 minutes, 120-150 minutes, 150-180 minutes and 180-210 minutes respectively.
