Some airlines offer India-UK flights at Rs 19,000-Rs 34,000 in mid-Sept vs current Rs 1-1.5 lakh

Airfares between India and UK have soared to the range of Rs 1.2 lakh to 1.5 lakh for flights in the rest of August but for mid-September, Etihad, Turkish Airlines and Emirates charging much lower rates -- between Rs 20,000 and Rs 35,000.

Fares shot up last week because of the sudden spike in demand after the UK decided to move India from its “red list” to the “amber” category, opening up the possibility of Indians to travel to the country without the mandatory 10-day hotel quarantine.

The rush led to air fares shooting up from about Rs 50,000-Rs 70,000 before August 8 to between Rs 1,18,344 and Rs 1,48,355 for August, data collected by Moneycontrol from Air India, Vistara Airlines,, and showed.

A look at the available economy class seats on flights between India and the UK shows that most flights in August have limited seats available. Between August 13 and August 25, barely four to five seats are available and these are priced between Rs 1,18,344 and Rs 1,48,355, data complied by Moneycontrol showed.
