DGCA issues 7 fare bands, fix lower and upper limit of domestic flights fare

new Delhi. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has released seven categories of air fares on Thursday and notified the minimum and maximum fares for each category. The air routes are divided into 7 categories, the first flying less than 40 minutes, the second flying 40 to 60 minutes, the third flying 60 to 90 minutes, the fourth flying 90 to 120 minutes, the fifth flying 120 to 150 minutes , Sixth 150 to 180 minute flight and seventh 180 to 210 minute flight. All routes within the country are covered under these 7 categories.

The DGCA said that for flights completed in less than 40 minutes, the lower fare limit would be Rs 2000 and the maximum limit would be Rs 6000. At the same time, the minimum fare will be Rs 2500 and the maximum fare will be Rs 7500 for the flights that complete the journey in 40 to 60 minutes.

For flights completed in 60 to 90 minutes, the minimum fare will be Rs 3000 and the maximum fare will be Rs 9000. For flights completed in 90 to 120 minutes, such as Delhi-Mumbai route, the lower fare limit is Rs. 3500 and the upper limit is Rs. 10,000.

Minimum fares will be Rs 4500 and the maximum fare will be Rs 13000 for the flights that complete the journey within 120 to 150 minutes. Minimum fares for flights between 150 to 180 minutes, such as Delhi-Imphal route, are Rs 5500 and maximum fare is Rs 15700. The flights that complete the journey in 180 to 210 minutes, such as on the Delhi-Coimbatore route, will have a minimum fare of Rs 6500 and a maximum fare of Rs 18600.

The Civil Aviation Secretary stated that 40 percent of the seats would be sold at a fare less than the midpoint of the band. For example, a midpoint of Rs 3500 and Rs 10,000 is Rs 6700. Therefore 40 percent of the seats will be sold for less than Rs 6700. That way we are making sure that the rent is not out of control.
