Airport charges relief for fliers to and from IGI Airport

Published on : Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Indira Gandhi International Airport in New DelhiAccording to aviation regulator DGCA, passengers flying into and from the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport after July 7 can claim a refund of excess airport charges paid as part of their airfare..


This is in the wake of a recent tariff order slashing User Development Fee (UDF) for domestic passengers flying out of Delhi airport to Rs. 10 from Rs. 275-550.


The levy was reduced to Rs. 45 from Rs. 635-1,270 for international travellers flying out of IGI.


Domestic passengers travelling after July 7 can claim a refund within 45 days, while international travellers have 60 days, according to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation’s notification dated July 18.

Both domestic and international passengers landing in Delhi will not have to pay the UDF anymore.


After the deadline, the unclaimed amount will be remitted by the airlines to the airport operator.


The Airports Economic Regulatory Authority had ordered a steep cut in airport levy in December 2015 but its implementation was pending because the Delhi airport operator approached the Delhi High Court against the slashing of charges, after which the court ordered a stay.


Air India challenged this in the Supreme Court which vacated the stay order, offering relief for passengers.

However, passengers who have booked their tickets on or before July 7 but are yet to commence their travel are not required to file for refund as airlines have been instructed to initiate the refund process on their own.
