On the Delhi-Hyderabad route, airfare is up 3% compared to last year
You may have to shell out 20-30 per cent more compared to last year if you plan to take a flight during this Diwali. The hike in prices comes on the back of strong demand and increase in aviation turbine fuel (ATF) price.
“Flight searches have risen by 25-30 per cent for leisure travel for the Dussehra and Diwali week as compared to last year. With international travel fully open for tourists this year and fewer entry requirements for vaccinated travellers, we can expect festive travel demand surges similar to pre-pandemic levels,” said Rajnish Kumar, co-founder, ixigo.
