To ensure that the flight ticket prices are affordable for passengers as well as financially viable for airlines, the government has released the upper and lower limits of flight ticket prices.
Under the new fare structure, air routes have been divided into seven bands based on travel time. Each such section has its minimum and maximum fare. The airfares have been capped for three months.
Here are the seven price bands:
1) Sector ‘A’ will have flights with a duration of less than 40 minutes.
