Check flight fare from concerned Airlines' websites: DGCA advisory
New Delhi: Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has issued an advisory on Tuesday regarding travel to international destinations.
Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) tweeted that passengers travelling to international destinations "are requested to check the fare from concerned Airlines' websites as metasearch engines at times do not reflect actual fare and end up with an exaggerated figure".
The advisory comes after Mr Sanjeev Gupta, IAS, found a technical glitch in the travel portals offering flight booking services on exaggerated fare. In a series of tweets, Mr Sanjeev Gupta underscored the need to address the issue and brought to the notice of Ministry of Civil Aviation .
Subsequently, Ministry of Civil Aviation responded that there are media reports claiming India-UK one-way economy class fares have touched Rs. 4 lakhs. These reports have no proven basis. The veracity of Sh Sanjeev Gupta’s claim has been thoroughly checked by DGCA.
