FIA Withdraws Lawsuit Challenging Udan Cess


Lobby group Federation of Indian Airlines (FIA) withdrew a lawsuit challenging the government’s decision to impose a cess to fund its regional connectivity scheme Udan.

FIA, which counts SpiceJet Ltd, InterGlobe Aviation Ltd-run IndiGo, Jet Airways (India) Ltd and GoAir as its members, had filed the lawsuit late last year.

“Everybody understands the importance of Udan and the first round of Udan has proved to be quite successful and we had several conversations with the government and we thought that it was in the best interest of the system that FIA take back the case,” SpiceJet chairman Ajay Singh said in an interview on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in New Delhi on Friday.
