In India, air travel is an expensive proposition, and not just for those who are keen to fly abroad.
For the general public, India is also a country where the costs are high, but not for the well-off.
According to an International Air Transport Association (IATA) study, India ranks last in terms of air travel fares and average travel time for all airlines in terms for average travel cost per passenger.
It is also the country with the lowest average domestic airfare per passenger for domestic flights in India.
Airline fares and air travel timeIndia fares per passenger are very expensive, with average airfare of Rs 7,700 (about $2,000) for the domestic flights, and Rs 12,200 (about 30 percent more than India’s current domestic fares) for international flights.
The Indian government also sets an air travel fare for a passenger to be Rs 11,000 for domestic flight, Rs 13,500 for international flight, and even Rs 17,000 (around 20 percent more) for overnight domestic flights.
Airline prices and timeIndia’s fares for domestic travel are among the cheapest in the world, with the average air ticket of Rs 2,200 ($600) going for the cheapest domestic fares, and of Rs 4,000 ($600), for international fares.
The average domestic fare for international travel is also around Rs 3,000 per person.
The cheapest air travel rates in India are between Rs 10,000 and Rs 20,000.
The IATA study also showed that air travel in India has an average cost per person of about $7,300 (about 40 percent more), which is only marginally lower than the international average.
The airline fares are not cheap for India’s poor.
Indian airline air fares are almost double the global average, with an average fare of Rs 8,500 ($3,800), and a fare that is more than double the world average of about Rs 10 and 30,000, respectively.
Airfare is also expensive for people living in India’s rural areas.
In Delhi, a single person living in a village, for example, will have to pay around $2.30 (Rs 1,200) per day to fly to work, whereas in Mumbai, a rural resident living in the city, who lives on a modest income, will pay about $4.80 (Rs 5,100) per flight.
Airlines in India have also been accused of discrimination in their policies towards minorities, and discrimination against women in their ticket prices.
Despite these issues, airlines in India do a decent job of providing affordable air travel, especially for those travelling to the south, and also in other parts of the world.
According to the IATA, India has about 1.3 million air miles, which are the air miles of flights booked for a single passenger on an Indian domestic flight.
Indian airlines can use these air miles to book flights on international carriers such as Virgin Atlantic, AirAsia and Frontier Airlines, as well as domestic carriers such a Air India, India West, and Air Asia Pacific.
India also offers air travel to those who wish to fly outside the country.
For instance, in the first quarter of 2018, India also offered air travel services to students from all over the world to fly home from their school or university in India, including in the United States.
In September 2018, Indian Airlines started offering the cheapest airfare in the Indian market to students living abroad in India from China.
The airline has also made efforts to provide air travel for low income families, particularly in rural areas, which is a big opportunity for low-income families in India to travel abroad.
India is a country with an estimated population of about 2.7 billion, and has about 11 million population in urban areas.
India has more than 1.2 billion people who live in rural India, which has been experiencing a rise in population since the mid-1980s.
According to the latest census, there were 1.17 billion rural residents in India in 2019.
The Indian population in the rural areas is estimated to be around 16.3 percent of the total population.
