No check on airfare

Srinagar, Feb 26: Despite Governor Satya Pal Malik raised issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the airline companies continue to exploit Kashmiris.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

The airline companies charge around Rs 10,000 from Srinagar to New Delhi.

“I got ticket for Rs 10000 from Srinagar to Delhi,” said Farooq Ahmad,  a Srinagar resident who has to meet his daughter, who studies in one of the colleges in New Delhi. 
Another passenger Ashfaq Ahmad said he got air ticket for Rs 7000 from Jammu to Srinagar. “There is no implementation of Governor’s words as airline companies continue exploit us,” he added. 
Earlier Malik appealed Prime Minister to direct airlines companies to decrease airfare during winters when Srinagar-Jammu National Highway gets closed.
“During winters the airlines charge Rs 18,000 to each passenger. They exploit Kashmiris when Srinagar-Jammu National Highway remains closed. I appeal you to take measures so that the air companies don’t exploit people by increasing airfare,” the Governor has said. “Students face immense inconvenience and many miss the examination due to exploitation by airline companies.”
There is abrupt increase in airfare when Srinagar-Jammu National Highway remains closed.
