Airfares on Delhi-Mumbai route has gone up with the number of flights coming down on the key trunk route due to runway closure at Mumbai airport for repair works.

As per MakeMyTrip, a one-way ticket for the country's busiest Delhi-Mumbai sector could cost Rs 3,000-3,500 for travel on November 15 by a low-cost carrier such as GoAir and SpiceJet.

An airline executive said that due to runway closure at Mumbai airport, the total flights movement has come down. As a result, there is a marginal increase in the price of air tickets.

"The number of flights has come down by 10 per cent. Since the demand is low the existing capacity is still in excess and hence ticket prices remain reasonable. Unlike in the past when ticket prices on the route during peak season touched Rs 20,000 one way we have not seen such situation this time around," he said.

An Air India official also denied that airfare had touched sky-high as being reported.

"The ticket price is very much normal. There has only been a little increase but that could be attributed to peak season," the executive said.
