Measures for Transparency in Air Fares

25-April-2012,Scheduled domestic airlines are displaying components of total fare on their respective website, which comprises Basic Fare, Airline Fuel Charges, Congestion Charges/Transition Charges, User Development Fees/Airports Development Fees, Passenger Service Fees and Service Tax. There are no hidden chargers other than the break up mentioned above.
            With a view to maintain transparency in tariff publication, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has taken following steps:
·         Scheduled domestic airlines have been asked to display established tariff route-wise and fare category-wise in their websites, on monthly basis and also to notify any significant and noticeable changes to DGCA within 24 hours of affecting such a change.
·         A Tariff Analysis Unit has been set up in DGCA to monitor tariff on regular basis at periodic intervals.
This information was given by the Minister of Civil Aviation Shri Ajit Singh in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
