Including the recently introduced Rs 1,300 Airport Development Fee (ADF) charged by the Delhi International Airport Ltd. (DIAL), the total fare works out to an astoundingly low Rs. 9,299.

Tom Wright, General Manager, Cathay Pacific said,

“These ultra-low special fares have been a big cracker as soon after the announcement, the inquiries have went up sharply both on our website and with the tour operators. The response has been terrific and we could also be looking some innovative fares for other sectors.”

We can expect competing airlines on this route, Thai Airways, Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Jet Airways and Air India to match this fare soon even if they claim the Cathay fare is “abysmally low”.
