Supreme Court stops airlines from charging transaction fees

New Delhi The Supreme Court has ordered airlines to stop collecting "transaction fees" from passengers.

The judges have slammed the aviation regulator for not penalising airlines who add charges to their base fares.

The court has suggested that airlines are violating agreed-upon structures for pricing of tickets by adding unsanctioned taxes and fees.

The judges today said, "Airlines should not collect transaction fees in any form or under some other name."
