Upper limit for airfares fixed

The upper limit for airfares has been set to prevent airlines from charging exorbitantly high prices on resumption of flights. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has released a fare structure setting the minimum airfare at Rs 2,000 for short flights and the upper limit at Rs 18,600 for the longest flights. The capped fares will be in force until August 24, 2020, but may be withdrawn earlier if the situation is conducive to such a move. The upper limit for the Delhi-Mumbai route, one of the busiest, has been set at Rs 10,000 (one way).
