The charges levied for international flights will likely range from US$209.55 to US$149.33 on airplanes. The Airports Economic Regulatory Authority of India (AERA) permitted DIAL to charge passengers for the extra baggage screening charges. "A passenger who takes a domestic flight is unlikely to pay more than Rs 5 as 'X-ray baggage charge'. On an international flight, the per-passenger charge would not be more than Rs 50," a source said. Loaded luggage is usually checked by the airport operator as cabin luggage screening and passenger frisking is conducted by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officials.
AERA is a statutory body which determines the tariff for aeronautical services, including passenger service fees, development fees, as well as monitors performance standards. Since last year, passengers flying from the airport had to shell out an extra Rs 77 for tickets purchased with Indian rupees towards facilitation component of the Passenger Service Fee (PSF). The airport regulator — formed in 2009 — decides on airport fees at all major airports in India. The regulator was formed following the government's decision to allow private companies to own airports with the privatisation of airports in Delhi and Mumbai.
