Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said, in the last 10 days, there has been a decline of 16-64 percent in air fares.

Air Fare: Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, while talking about the increase in air fares in the past, said that there was an increase due to two reasons. He said that civil aviation is a seasonal sector. Scindia said that there are two seasons (one high season and the other low season) in the civil aviation sector. In terms of air travel, it was pickup season. In the midst of all this, one of our airlines ceased operations. Due to this, this increased the pressure and due to the additional demand, the prices increased. However, things improved after the meeting on the 5th. He said that there has been a reduction of 16 to 64 percent in the fare in the last 10 days.

IndiGo orders 500 aircraft from Airbus

Domestic airlines Indigo has ordered 500 aircraft to Airbus by making the biggest deal ever in the aviation industry. In a statement issued by the airline company, it was said that this is the largest order ever placed by an airline for aircraft. It was said on behalf of the company that the engine for these 500 aircraft would be selected over time. These will include A320 and A321 aircraft.

Jyotiraditya Scindia gave this reaction

At the same time, reacting to this, Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has called this deal historic. Scindia said, I consider it a historic day. Our air fleet strength was around 400 in 2013-14, it has increased by 75 per cent and now it is around 700. If you look at Air India, there is an order for 470 aircraft including Airbus and Boeing. This is more than the national air fleet in 2013-14. Now Indigo has ordered 500 aircraft, this is more than 25% of our fleet in 2013-14. This shows that India’s civil aviation sector has immense potential.
