Indian skies have been locked in a pitched fare battle for the last couple of years as airlines try to woo customers with discounted fares on a regular basis. Analysts believe the stiff competition among airlines amid robust growth in the number of passengers is leading to lower fares. Domestic air passenger traffic rose 15.15 percent to 91.34 lakh in April, according to data from aviation regulator DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation).Under the GST or Goods and Services Tax regime that is due to roll out from July 1, economy class air travel is set to become cheaper. The tax slab for economy air travel has been fixed at 5 per cent against the existing 6 per cent. However, business class tickets are expected to become more expensive it’s been put under the tax bracket of 12 per cent compared to the existing nine per cent.
