Civil Aviation Ministry Allows Airlines to Increase Passenger Capacity by up to 85%

Published

on

The Ministry of Civil Aviation said on Saturday that airlines can now operate a maximum of 85 percent of the pre-covid-19 domestic flights instead of 72.5 percent. As per the order of the ministry, airlines have been working 72.5 percent of their pre-covid-19 domestic flights since August 12. This limit was 65 percent between July 5 and August 12. Between June 1 and July 5, this limit was 50 percent.

The ministry issued a new order on Saturday. It modified its August 12 order to read 72.5 percent capacity as 85 percent capacity and shall remain in force till the order.

Earlier, the Civil Aviation Ministry said on Saturday that the lower and upper limit of airfare would be applicable at any point in time for 15 days. The airlines are free to charge the fee without any limitation from the 16th day. This arrangement, which came into force from August 12 this year, was currently for 30 days, and airlines were charging without any limit from the 31st day. The ministry said in a new order issued on Saturday, “Suppose today the date is September 20; then the fare limit will be applicable till October 4. Thus, for travel on October 5 or any date after that, bookings made on September 20 will not be governed by the fare ceiling. The order said that if bookings are made on the next day, i.e., September 21, then the fare limit will be applicable till October 5, and for travel on or after October 6, the fare limit will not be practical.

 

India had fixed a lower and upper limit of fare based on the duration of the flight when flight services resumed on May 25, 2020, after the lockdown imposed due to the covid-19 epidemic. Domestic air travel became expensive on 12 August this year. The Ministry of Civil Aviation had increased the lower and upper limits of fares from 9.83 to 12.82 percent.
