Our first India flights posting of 2008 :) Last week we looked at flights from Mumbai to Delhi, and this week we're examining how much it costs to fly from Delhi to Chennai. We consider Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai to be the golden triangle of the Indian aviation, industry, which is why our initial surveys of the Indian flight industry involves these cities.

Jetlite airline- most honest in advertising flight prices in India

Last week we mentioned that the flight prices many Indian airliners show upfront is not the full flight price you'll pay, and promised to expose those airlines which aren't displaying full flight prices. Here's a table displaying the differences between the initial flight prices the airline displays and the final flight prices which you have to pay:


Upfront flight price

It's interesting to us that, contrary to international practise, not a single Indian Airline besides Jetlite Airline displays the full ticket price upfront, rather breaking it up into taxes and their own fees - which doesn't make it easy for passengers.
