DGCA extends fare capping till Nov 24

new Delhi. The limit imposed on fares of domestic flights will now be applicable till 24 November. The DGCA issued instructions regarding this today. Recently, the aviation minister indicated that the limit on fares may continue even after 24 August. Given the Corona crisis, the aviation companies could not arbitrate fares, so on May 21, the government fixed fares in domestic flights according to the time of flight.

On May 21, the DGCA issued a ceiling on the fares fixed by the government. According to the rules, domestic airlines had to keep their fare within this limit. At the same time, tickets were to be kept below the maximum and minimum fare to a certain extent. According to the rules, the minimum fare for flights less than 40 minutes has been fixed at Rs 2000 and the maximum fare is Rs 6000. At the same time, for a flight of 40 minutes to 60 minutes, the minimum fare is Rs 2500 and the maximum fare is Rs 7500.

The minimum fare for a 60- to 90-minute flight has been fixed at Rs 3000 and the maximum fare is Rs 9000. For a 90 to 120 minute flight, the minimum fare is Rs 3500 and the maximum fare is kept at 10 thousand rupees. For 120- 150 minute flight, the fare range is 4500 to 13000 rupees and in 150-180 minute flight the fare range is 5500 rupees to 15700 rupees.

Along with this, the DGCA has also extended the remaining restrictions on domestic flights till 24 November.
