Prepare to shed extra if you are flying from Bengaluru Airport over the coming months! Based on an Airport Economic Regulatory Authority (AERA) amendment, the User Development Fee (UDF) at the Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru (also known as KIAB or BLR Airport) has been revised.
The AERA amendment was issued on 4 April 2019, following the interim relief given by the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal’s (TDSAT) ruling of 14 March 2019. The move allowed Bengaluru Airport to collect revised charges for a limited period of four months.
As per the new order, which will come into effect from 16 April 2019, the UDF for domestic departures will be revised from Rs 139 to Rs 306 and the UDF for international departures will be increased from Rs 558 to Rs 1,226. Read More
