India’s legacy carriers have long had a policy of charging foreigners and non-resident Indians (NRIs) fares in dollars, which work out to about 50% more than Indian nationals paid for the same tickets. India’s low fare carriers did away with this policy, offering the same (unprofitable) low fares to everyone. Now, in a huge change in policy, Jet Airways, Indian Airlines, and Air Sahara have all announced that they will drop the dual-pricing strategy. Jet Airways has already implemented the new fares, while the other 2 carriers will do so soon. A welcome change if you’re flying within India.
