IndiGo introduces fuel charge to offset rising ATF prices

IndiGo, India’s leading airline, 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.

Sector Distance (in km)Fuel Charge
0-500INR 300
501-1000INR 400
1001-1500INR 550
1501- 2500INR 650
2501 – 3500INR 800
3501 and aboveINR 1000

IndiGo remains committed to offer affordable fares to its valued customers. IndiGo will also publish the tariff sheet subsequently, with the sector-wise charges that can be viewed on
