Indian Aviation grew fastest amid asia-pacific carriers says report

New Delhi: The central government on Monday said it is going into the issue of some airlines charging a fee for advance seat selection through web check-in.

"MoCA (Ministry of Civil Aviation) has noted that airlines are now charging for web check-in for all seats," the Ministry said on its Twitter handle.

"We are reviewing these fees to see whether they fall within the unbundled pricing framework."

The Ministry's decision comes in the wake of two leading budget carriers starting to charge a fee for all seat selections done through web check-in from November 14.

Earlier, only a section of seats were subjected to advance selection fees.
