Air fares to remain high till Oct 31

A travel agent told TOI that the normal average price for a one-way Delhi-Mumbai flight is between Rs 4,000 and Rs 5,000. "Owing to Diwali, the tickets are selling for around Rs 10,000 for Delhi and up to Rs 12,000 for Mumbai," he said.
The situation will remain the same till October 31. Thanks to Chhat festival, which falls just after Diwali, minimum fare for Indore- Patna flights has gone up to Rs 14,000. "Increase in airfare is obvious as demand rises during festivals. Also, this is the time for airlines to make up for losses," said Hemendra Singh Jadon of Indore-based Overseas Travel.
