Six Green field airports have been commissioned in the country during the last three years including two international airports at Kushinagar in Uttar Pradesh and Mopa at Goa, Minister of state for civil aviation minister General (retd) V K Singh informed the lok sabha in a written answer.

Madhya Pradesh, the home state of civil aviation minister Jyotir aditya Scindia will get any number of green field airports in the coming years.

The government of India owned Airports Authority of India has undertaken expansion of its existing airports namely Gwalior, Rewa and Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh.

After deregulation of airline sector, the airfare is market driven and is neither established nor regulated by the Government. Air ticket prices generally vary depending upon the market forces. Airline pricing runs in multiple levels {buckets or Reservation Booking Designator (RBD)} which are in line with the practice being followed globally. Due to dynamic fare pricing, the tickets bought in advance are much cheaper than those purchased near the date of travel.

The airlines are free to fix reasonable tariffs under the provisions of sub-rule (1) of Rule 135 of the Aircraft Rules, 1937 having regard to all relevant factors, including cost of operation, characteristics of services, reasonable profit and the generally prevailing tariff.

Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has a Tariff Monitoring Unit that monitors airfares on certain routes on monthly basis to ensure that the airlines do not charge airfares outside a range declared by them. The airlines are compliant to the Sub Rule (2) of Rule 135 of the Aircraft Rules, 1937 as long as fare charged by them is in line with fare displayed on their website.
