Separate counters at govt-run airports to offer tea, snacks at affordable rates

New Delhi: Tea and snacks would be available at the maximum retail price at some counters in government-run airports in the country, the Airport Authority of India (AAI) said Saturday.

The counters have already started offering a few beverages and packaged drinking water at affordable prices for the passengers benefit, said an AAI official.

The move comes after persistent complaints by passengers about the exorbitant rates charged for food and beverages at airport terminals.

The issue has also been raised by MPs in Parliament time and again. In March this year, senior Congress leader P Chidambaram had taken to Twitter to vent his ire over the high price of a cup of tea at the Chennai airport, which he declined to have.
