Industry experts mentioned many more reasons for the increase in airfare prices. They said that some of the reasons behind this are the increasing fuel prices and the insolvency of Go First Airlines.

Subair explained that Go First Airlines had very competitive flight fares, and hence, its insolvency had a great impact on the fares. 

This has caused a little disappointment for the travellers who were looking forward to exploring various destinations in the country. All the UAE residents who visit India during the summer months are actually feeling the impact on their pockets very badly. 

Many have been planning a trip to India to explore its cultural diversity and heritage, but the trip is costing them nearly double what they had imagined.
