I recently went for an international flight from Mumbai to Cape Town with a 24 hour layover in Qatar, South Africa and back via Qatar Airways by the same route. While I was booking I was told/given the various charges. Am curious to know which ones get passed on to the airport, which to the carrier and which go to the Government -
Fuel Surcharge (YQAC) 17024.00
Fiscal Tax (YRVB) 536.00
Service Tax (JNAD) 2779.00
Development Fee (YMDE) 825.00
User Development Fee (INDO) 628.00
Passenger Service Fee (WOMU) 149.00
Passenger Service Charge (PZSE) 274.00
Passenger Safety Charge (EVAB) 90.00
Passenger Service Charge (ZAEB) 1529.00
Service Security Charge (UMSE) 106.00
Air Passenger Tax (WCTR) 840.00
Now I'm guessing the Air fuel surcharge and the Air Passenger Tax would be going to the Central or/and State Govt. Can anybody help ? Also the airport charges are with the airport of origin or would it be distributed with other airports which I used/travelled to as well ? How is the whole thing calculated ?
umm... can somebody share why they want to close this question ?
