Major airlines announce hike in fares

Written by: Staff

New Delhi, July 6 (UNI) Rising prices of aviation turbine fuel (ATF) and burgeoning operating costs have forced airlines to pass on the burden to customers.

Air travel will thus become costlier marginally from tomorrow as most domestic carriers have increased the fuel surcharge by Rs 100 to 300.

Jet Airways, Air Sahara, Indian, Kingfisher, SpiceJet, Air Deccan and GoAir today confirmed imposition of a revised fuel surcharge of Rs 500 which will lead to a hike in fares of all classes on all domestic routes.

The airlines took the decision in view of rising ATF prices by over Rs 900, taking them to over Rs 41,000 per kilolitre. Officials from all these airlines said the fuel surcharge will be applicable on all types of fares from July 7 in both business and economy class tickets.

They said the revised fuel surcharge of Rs 500 will be applicable on all tickets purchased within and outside India, issued against both rupees and dollar tariff. For tickets issued outside India, the same will be converted into local currency by using the applicable exchange rate.
