Low jet fuel prices made air travel cheaper in July

Aug 01, 2019 17:30 IST

A fall in jet fuel prices made air travel much more affordable in July this year. According to data from travel bookings site ixigo.com, average one-way fares during the month on domestic routes were as much as 40% lower compared to last year during the same month. Mumbai-Hyderabad fares dropped 39%, Mumbai-Chennai 62% and flights between Mumbai and Bengaluru were 33% cheaper in the month. Launch of new flight flights, last minute sales and the opening of Pakistani airspace also added to the boost.
