Flyers to pay user charges at Kolkata terminal from March 1


Kolkata: Flyers using the Kolkata airport will not have to pay user development fee until March 1. The regional airport authorities have postponed the levy for a fortnight. It was to have come into effect from Saturday.
The Airports Economic Regulatory Authority (AERA) had announced last month the additional levy – for both outbound and inbound passengers — of Rs 400 for domestic flyers and Rs 1,000 for those going abroad.
“We have decided to implement the UDF announced by the AERA from March 1 after the airlines shift to the new terminal. The airlines have also requested to postpone the date,” B. P. Sharma, Regional Director, Airports Authority of India, said.
