New Delhi, February 26, 2021: Soon travelers traveling without a check-in bag will get cheaper air tickets. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has issued a letter permitting companies to provide concession on tickets for passengers traveling by air without check-in bags. Traveling on domestic airlines has been expensive for some time. The rent was increased to make up for the damage caused by the Corona epidemic. However, following DGCA instructions, it would be cheaper to travel within the country without a check-in bag.

Traveling without a check-in bag can be cheaper in domestic air travel. The amount can be reduced to a maximum of 200 rupees. This is lower than the minimum level of check-in baggage which includes the fare. Currently, companies charge up to Rs 200 for a 15 kg check-in bag. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has now lifted this ban, due to which companies can now offer cheaper domestic air tickets. However, this charge can only work if the flight reaches the pre-epidemic level.

Cheap companies can offer cheap air tickets up to Rs 200. Now, after the ban is lifted, companies can give cheap air tickets through cabin bags. In March last year, for two months, domestic flights were suspended due to lockdown. 25 May 2020 domestic flying was resumed after the lockdown. The aviation ministry then formed a rental band for the companies. When the rental band was formed, light fairs were put on domestic flights.

The DGCA chief, Arun Kumar ordered on Thursday stating that “Airlines should ensure that levying appropriate charges to passengers traveling with check-in bags at Light Fair.”
