A Parliamentary panel has asked the government to look at capping air-ticket prices and control the “artificially created exorbitant prices in the Gulf sector”. The suggestion comes amid persisting concerns among certain quarters that airlines are levying high airfares, especially during festival seasons. The department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee on transport, tourism and culture has made the recommendation in its report-tabled in Parliament last week.
