Air travellers’ body questions ‘non-existent’ low fares


Apex air travellers’ association, Air Passengers Association of India (APAI) on Sunday questioned the frequent “special fare” offers by domestic carriers and termed them as “non-existent”, even as it urged the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) not to allow such schemes.

The association, in a communication to the DGCA, also sought to know as to what action the regulator intends to take against the carriers on the issue.

“We strongly believe that the DGCA must put an end to this practice of offering ridiculously low fares which are non-existent and are not really available to the passenger,” APAI president D. Sidhakara Reddy said.

Domestic carriers, incuding SpiceJet and Jet Airways , have been rolling out limited period “special sale” offers in the last few weeks.
