New Delhi. There is good news for air passengers. Airline companies will no longer be able to charge a passenger extra for issuance of boarding pass at the check-in counter of the airport. The Ministry of Civil Aviation on Thursday ordered all airlines to put an immediate ban on it, calling it against the rules to charge extra for boarding passes. It had come to the notice of the ministry that airlines charge an additional fee when passengers demand a boarding pass at the airport check-in counter.

In the current system, companies charge an additional Rs 200 for issuing boarding passes to passengers without doing web check-in. On Thursday, the ministry tweeted that it has come to the notice of the Ministry of Civil Aviation that airlines are charging extra for issuing boarding passes to passengers. This is absolutely wrong.
