DGCA to remove cap on domestic tickets; airfares likely to increase from Aug 31

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has issued a notification that says that the airfare caps on tickets of domestic airlines will be removed from August 31. The notification reads, “after review of the current status of Scheduled Domestic Operations viz-a-viz passenger demand for air travel in terms of the purpose specified in the initial Order No. 02/2020 dated 21.05.2020, it has been decided to remove the fare bands notified from time to time regarding airfares with effect from 31.08.2022.”

The decision comes after the government started discussions with several airlines in June, about removing the price bands for passenger fares. This took place following the demand from some airlines for the same, saying that this is becoming a hurdle for the aviation industry to recover fully after the Covid-19 pandemic.
