In a great relief to the country's airlines, the price of jet turbine fuel (ATF) was reduced by 21% effective March 12th. CNBC-TV18 was the first to report the price cut, which is now available on the Indian Oil Corporation website.

In India, ATF spending is the largest spending on airlines' balance sheet, accounting for almost 35-40% of the total cost.
