Average Air Ticket Price Very Low, Won’t Cap Fare: Civil Aviation Secy


The civil aviation ministry has cited data showing low average prices of air tickets to a parliamentary panel and said that it has no plans of controlling the ticket prices.

Civil aviation secretary Rajiv Nayan Choubey’s reply to the Parliament’s consumer affairs panel comes after another House panel (on transport, tourism and culture) recommended the capping of fares.

High air ticket prices, especially during peak season or holidays, have often hit the headlines, but deposing at the meeting of the consumer affairs panel on January 12, Choubey said: “The average price is closer to the bottom fare. We have analysed 12 routes to see where does the average fare stands between the highest and the lowest fare rates. Only 3-4% tickets are sold in the highest fare bracket.” Read More…
