New Delhi, Dec 5: The intervention of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has resulted the slashing of the all time high airfares on Sunday, Dec 5.

According to the sources, major Airline companies have slashed the air fares up to 20-25 percentage. Earlier on Saturday, Dec 4, DGCA chief Bharat Bhushan had met chief executives of three low-cost airlines IndiGo, SpiceJet and GoAir and instructed them to determine tariffs fairly.
