Air passengers alert! Booking tickets through travel agents? Modi government has this message for you

Are you one of those air passengers booking tickets through travel agents on international flights operating under the Vande Bharat Mission? The Civil Aviation Ministry under the Modi government has an important message for you. Government has said that you must not pay more than the fares mentioned on Air India's website.

"Passengers booking tickets for #VBM flights through travel agents, may please note that they should not pay more than the fares mentioned on the Air India website. Passengers facing issues of overcharging by travel agents may write to," the ministry said on Twitter.
Scheduled international passenger flights continue to remain suspended in India since March 23 amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, since May 6, international charter flights have been operated by Air India under the Vande Bharat Mission to help stranded people reach their destinations. Private carriers have also operated a certain number of flights under this mission.

India had on July 16 formed bilateral air bubbles with countries like the US, Germany and France that allow airlines of both the countries in the pact to operate special international charter flights.

The aviation sector has been significantly impacted due to the travel restrictions imposed in India and other countries in view of the coronavirus pandemic. All airlines in India have taken cost-cutting measures such as pay cuts, leave without pay and firing of employees in order to conserve cash.
