As the resumption of operation of domestic flights was announced yesterday the pricing details came today. The Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri held a press conference on Thursday. Operations will start on 1/3 of the approved Summer schedule for domestic routes in a calibrated manner.

The central government has divided air routes into 7 categories based on flight durations. These categorizations are:

  • Flight time less than 40 minutes
  • Flights between 40 – 60 minutes
  • Flights between 60 – 90 minutes
  • Flights between 90 – 120 minutes
  • Flights between 120 – 150 minutes
  • Flights between 150 – 180 minutes
  • Flights between 180 – 210 minutes

The price of tickets would be determined by airlines based on this route-wise classification. However, the lowest and highest possible fares have been fixed for each class of flights. The lowest fare for the Delhi Mumbai route, the densest route in the country, has been fixed at Rs. 3,500 and the highest fare at Rs. 10,000. The price would be regulated till August 24. Some other announcements made in the conference were:

  • 40% of the tickets will have to be sold at a price less than the mid-point of the price band.
  • The middle seat would not be left vacant as this does not meet the physical distancing requirement said, Minister Puri. Keeping seat vacant will pass cost increase to customers he added.
  • No in-flight meals would be provided.
  • The cabin crew would be in full protective gear.
  • Only 1 check-in bag allowed.
  • Passengers to report at least 2 hours before departure.
  • Fares to be regulated, within fixed range.
