India unveils aviation plan to 'take flying to the masses'

New Delhi unveils plans to make air travel affordable for millions more Indians, with schemes to revive ailing airports and connect rural areasNew Delhi on Friday announced a plan to make air travel affordable for millions more Indians, with schemes to revive ailing airports and connect rural areas that it said would “take flying to the masses”. The long-awaited draft policy aims to bring down airfares to 2,500 rupees ($40) per hour of flying on many regional routes through a slew of tax incentives, subsidies and a two percent levy on international and some domestic routes. It outlines plans to revive India’s dilapidated airports and airstrips, of which only about 75 out of 476 are in use, build “no-frills” airports and set up a fund to improve access to rural areas.
