The government has become strict regarding the rising air fares in the country. Due to which the airlines have got a big blow because now they will not be able to charge the fare from the passengers as per their wish. After the strictness of the government, in the last 2 days, the maximum air fares from Delhi to many places have been reduced by 14 to 61 percent. Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia had said that airlines companies should charge reasonable fares from passengers. DGCA and my ministry are monitoring this on a daily basis.

The government has asked airlines to explain the reason for increasing ticket prices on particular routes and ensure reasonable airfares. Along with this, all airlines have been asked to stop the hike in fares and prepare a new mechanism for higher airfares. So that passengers can be given relief from expensive fares.

Rent was increased by 2 to 3 times

Actually, after the cancellation of GoFirst flight from May 3, other companies increased their flight fares so much that passengers had to pay 2 to 3 times more fare to travel by flight. To curb fare hike, the government has urged airlines to self-monitor the airfares on these routes, especially within the High Reservation Booking Designer (RBD) class, and now the DGCA will be monitoring the airline's process.

In addition, the government stressed the need for airlines to closely monitor air ticket prices during times of disaster. Airlines are expected to moderate any hike in ticket prices to and from affected areas to address the human condition. The recent tragedy in Odisha serves as an example, where airlines It has been advised to provide free carriage services to the families of the deceased.

Air fares are not regulated by the government

CIBIL Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has already said that air fares in India are neither established nor regulated by the government. Instead they are set by the airlines based on market demand, weather and other market factors. As the demand for seats increases, the low-fare seats sell out quickly, leading to higher airfares.
