Airports to face loss of Rs 650 crore per annum on duty-free sales restrictions

Updated : January 22, 2020 06:31 AM IST

As passenger charges alone are never enough to fund the cost of developing and operating airports, operators depend on non-aeronautical revenue to subsidise these costs.
At most Indian airports, duty-free revenues make up 15-20 percent of the total non-aeronautical revenues and sales of liquor and cigarettes together account for over 75-80 percent of overall duty-free sales.
AAI is also expected to lose Rs 330 crore annually with a loss of Rs 180 crore from its own operations and Rs 150 crore due to reduction in revenue share payments from Delhi and Mumbai airport.
