Air fares triple for India-Pakistan World Cup Cricket match in Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad: When the Motera stadium in Ahmedabad is set to host the most sought-after India Pakistan World Cup Cricket match, all roads and flight paths lead to Ahmedabad on October 15.

As cricket fans, VVIPs, teams and sponsors have begun making their hotel and travel bookings for the match, airfares have skyrocketed to as high as 350% from major cities to Ahmedabad.

For instance, a round trip from Chennai to Ahmedabad will cost you a whopping Rs 45,425 per person for non-stop flights, even when booked three months in advance on July 15. Under normal circumstances, this would cost Rs 10,000 for a round trip, travel industry sources say.

The ICC Cricket World Cup will be held in India from October 5 to November 19. According to the schedule announced recently, the opening match, final and contest between India and Pakistan will be held at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Anticipating high demand on match days, airfares to Ahmedabad from major cities have skyrocketed for October 14-16 this year, even when booked now. Even nearby destinations such as Mumbai and Delhi have clocked 339% and 203% increases in fares for these dates.
