New Delhi: Passengers flying out of Delhi airport will have to pay more by shelling out Rs 77 per ticket from December 1, with regulator AERA approving revision in service charges.
Currently, Rs 10 is levied on domestic tickets and Rs 45 on international tickets by the airport operator DIAL as passenger service fee. Besides, there are revisions to certain aeronautical charges, according to an order issued by the Airports Economic Regulatory Authority (AERA).
