The Airport Economic Regulatory Authority (AERA) has proposed to reduce the User Development Fees (UDF) which is collected from passengers at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) with effect from September 16.
The airport authorities are dropping the price by 67%.
From September 16 to March 31, 2019.
For Domestic Passengers will have to pay Rs 139 instead of Rs 306 currently.
Whereas, International Passengers will have to pay Rs 400 from Rs 1226.
The fares would be hiked again from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020
Domestic Passenger – Rs 139
International Passengers – Rs 558
Aera is also planning to reduce landing, parking and housing charges by 60% too.
We are not sure that Airlines would forward those charges to their customers. However, looks like one of the cheapest airports in India might become the best Airport in terms of prices to fly for International traffic as compared to Mumbai/Delhi.
