Air tickets in India to get costlier

July 21, 2009

Air tickets in India to get costlier as Government proposes User Development Fee (UDF) at nine airports in the country.

“A proposal to impose UDF at Thiruvananthapuram, Ahmedabad, Udaipur, Amritsar, Varanasi, Vishakhapatanam, Jaipur, Trichy and Mangalore has been received from the AAI (Airports Authority of India), which is under examination,” Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel said in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.

Replying to another query, the Minister said around 3,024 flights were operating from 17 international airports in the country and the AAI was taking several measures including construction of new exit taxi-ways, using both the runways simultaneously at Delhi and Mumbai airports and opening of new runways to decongest the pressure at the major airports.
