AAI opposing cut in Delhi airport charges sad: IATA


Terming as “unfortunate” and “disappointing” the AAI decision to oppose proposed reduction in charges at Delhi airport by 78 per cent, International Air Transport Association (IATA) has said the move would prove detrimental to both passengers and airlines.

On the contrary, lower airport fee would stimulate the traffic growth at the Delhi Airport as it would bring down airfares to an affordable limits, it said, reports Economic Times.

“It is unfortunate and disappointing that AAI has taken a very short-term view on the Delhi Airport charges by contesting against the proposal of the independent regulator to reduce these inflated charges,” IATA Regional Vice President for Asia Pacific Conrad Clifford told PTI.

His statement came following AAI’s opposition to the proposal on the ground that it would adversely affect its bottomline.
