Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his concern over high airfares during festive season. This came after a representation that airfares are high during the Onam festival that is celebrated in Kerala. At that time, many Keralites, who are working in the Middle East and were heading home with their families, had to shell out high prices of air tickets.
