90 pc of flight tickets to and from flood-hit Kerala were sold below Rs 10000: Choubey

New Delhi: Civil Aviation Secretary R N Choubey Tuesday said that 90 per cent of tickets on flights to and from flood-affected Kerala were sold below Rs 10,000, dismissing the charge that airlines had jacked up the fares exorbitantly.
"Ninety per cent tickets sold at less than Rs 10,000 which was an informal ceiling set (by authorities) and airlines cooperated," he told reporters on the sidelines of the International Aviation Summit here.
He said the fares were in economy class and for direct flights to the state.
He also took on those who sought to mislead the general public by putting up screenshots which claimed the airfares had touched Rs 60,000 on social media.
These fares, he said, were not for direct flights to and from Kerala.
