Flying out from Delhi airport to be costlier

Flying out from Delhi airport to be costlier New Delhi: Airports regulator has allowed GMR Infrastructure Ltd, which leads a consortium that runs New Delhi's international airport, to increase the usage fees charged on passengers and airlines starting May 15, the company said on Wednesday.

As a result, outbound domestic passengers from New Delhi will have to pay around Rs 290 more for a ticket, while overseas fares from the city may go up by around Rs 580, GMR Infrastructure said.GMR Infrastructure said the fee hike is only half of what it had requested the regulator to approve, but added that this still will be "a significant step in stemming the losses of (the airport) and taking it toward viability."

The company didn't give the extent to which landing and parking fees for airlines will be raised.
