IGI passengers to receive excess airport levy refund
Passengers flying to and from the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport here after July 7 can claim a refund of excess airport charges paid as part of their airfare, according to aviation regulator DGCA.
This follows a recent tariff order slashing User Development Fee (UDF) for domestic passengers flying out of Delhi airport to Rs 10 from Rs 275-550. The levy was reduced to Rs 45 from Rs 635-1,270 for international travellers flying out of IGI. Both domestic and international passengers landing in Delhi will not have to pay the UDF anymore.
Domestic passengers travelling after July 7 can claim a refund within 45 days, while international travellers have 60 days, according to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation's notification dated July 18. pti
