DGCA fixes upper limit of fares on flights to Kerala at Rs 10,000

Fearing a fare spike on flights to Kerala due airport shutdown in Kochi, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has written to airlines to limit fares between Delhi and Kerala to RS 10,000.

In an e-mail to airlines, the DGCA has asked them to not raise fares to operational airports in Kerala. “They haves asked airlines to limit fares between Delhi and Trivandrum to RS 10,000,” said an official in the know.

The DGCA email mentions that the national carrier Air India has accepted the fare limit.

Meanwhile Vistara, which became the first airline to launch new flights to Trivandrum to evacuate passengers stuck in Kerala due to floods caused by unprecedented rains, had also fixed the fare to Rs 10,000 between Delhi and Trivandrum.
