New Delhi: The government today approved levying development fee at Mumbai International Airport in the face of opposition from global airlines body International Air Transport Association, with effect from 1 April.
An Airport Development Fee (ADF) of Rs100 will be charged from every outbound domestic passenger and Rs600 from each international passenger, official sources said.
On 10 February, the government had approved levying ADF on passengers going out of Delhi airport, from 1 March, at the rate of Rs200 per domestic passenger and Rs1,300 per passenger travelling abroad, a move that was criticised by the IATA.
ADF will be in operation for four years in Mumbai and two years in New Delhi.
