Government on Tuesday said that it has amended aircraft rules to rectify the “deceptive” advertisements by airline companies and make them give the breakup of the airfare charged from passengers.
“In order to rectify the deceptive advertisements by airlines, Rule 135 of Aircraft Rule, 1937 has been amended,” Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel said in a written reply in Rajya Sabha.
Airlines shall display tariff in a conspicuous manner to show the total amount payable by a passenger and complete break up of total amount, indicating the fare, tax, fees or any other charge separately, he said.
The Minister added that domestic airlines such as NACIL, Jet, JetLite, Kingfisher, Spicejet, Paramount, Go, Indigo and MDLR airlines have complied with the rules in displaying airfares on their respective websites.
Meanwhile, replying to another query, Patel said that 80 Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes category candidates were registered for pilot license training in flying institutes across the country, of which 15 candidates passed.
