IndiGo introduces fuel charge to offset rising ATF prices

IndiGo is introducing a fuel charge on domestic and international routes, effective 00:01hrs October 06, 2023. The decision follows the significant increase in Aviation Turbine Fuel (ATF) prices, which have surged in the last three months with consecutive price hikes every month. ATF accounts for a substantial portion of an airline’s operating expenses, necessitating fare adjustment to address such a cost surge.

Under this pricing structure, passengers booking IndiGo flights will incur a fuel charge, per sector, based on the sector distance.
