Airlines set to scrap dual pricing

Ashwini Phadnis

New Delhi , Nov. 10

Foreigners can look forward to flying at reduced rates with the three full-service domestic airlines Jet Airways, Air Sahara and Indian. While Jet Airways did away with differentiation in fares that a foreigner and an Indian passenger would pay earlier this week, Air Sahara is set to do away with dual pricing from November 16. The state-owned airlines Indian is also to follow suit in the next few days, sources indicated.

"Now a foreigner can also book and travel on the reduced fares that in some cases are 60 per cent less than the full fare," the sources said.

At the full fare level, the dollar fare charged by the airlines is 3-5 per cent higher than the existing fares. The low-cost airlines Air Deccan and SpiceJet, however, charge a single fare from a passenger be it an Indian or a foreigner.
