AI, Spicejet raise airfares by Rs 400

While SpiceJet increased the surcharge by Rs 400 with immediate effect, Air India announced that a similar hike would be effective for travel on all its domestic routes from tomorrow.

Private carriers Jet Airways, Kingfisher and their low-fare subsidiaries had hiked fuel surcharge by Rs 400 on Wednesday.

The increase in fuel surcharge comes following an over 33 per cent rise in ATF rates by oil firms since March this year.

Air India currently levies fuel surcharge of Rs 1,950 and Rs 2,700 on air tickets up to and beyond 750 km respectively, which will go up to Rs 2,350 and Rs 3,100. The surcharge for SpiceJet would go up to Rs 2,400.

For Jet Airways, hike would take fuel surcharge on a ticket below a distance of 750 km to Rs 2,450 and beyond that to Rs 3,400. For its no-frill subsidiaries Jet Airways Konnect and JetLite, it would be Rs 2,150 and Rs 3,100 respectively. There would be a similar increase for Kingfisher Airlines.

Officials of no-frill carriers IndiGo and GoAir are mulling their options saying they were yet to take a decision. These carriers currently charge Rs 2,000 as surcharge.
