IndiGo also reduces fuel surcharge

IndiGo joined fellow airlines Air India, Jet Airways, JetLite, Kingfisher Airlines, and Kingfisher Red and announced a cut of Rs 400 in its fuel surcharge across all domestic routes, today.

IndiGo President Aditya Ghosh said

“Effective December 6th, IndiGo has reduced its fuel surcharge to match that of Air India, Jet Airways and JetLite,”

He said this was aimed at keeping the promise of affordable fares and passing on the benefits of the recent reduction in aviation turbine fuel (ATF) prices to the air travellers.

Fuel cost constitutes between 40 and 50 per cent of the total operational cost of an airline in India
