Delhi airport charges to be cut by 89%

New Delhi: Air tickets for passengers flying in and out of the Delhi airport will become cheaper after the Union government ordered a reduction in airport charges by 89.40%.

According to the new tariff structure effective from July 7, a User Development Fee (UDF) of ₹10 and ₹45 will be levied on outbound domestic and international passengers, respectively, at Delhi airport. There will be no UDF on passengers arriving at the Delhi airport on international and domestic flights.

DIAL levied between ₹245 and ₹490 as UDF on each departing passenger and ₹207-₹415 on each arriving one, on domestic flights.

International passengers departing from Delhi airport were charged ₹565-₹1,131 and arriving passengers had to shell out ₹462-₹933.
The move followed an order passed by the Supreme Court on a petition by national carrier Air India, earlier this week, resolving the long-standing dispute between airport regulator Airports Economic Regulatory Authority of India (AERA) and GMR Infrastructure-led Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) on airport charges.
