Need some help from board members on the following routing: DEL-KTM-BOM-DEL
A relative is using a Virgin reward ticket to fly LHR-DEL-LHR. However they need to do a local/regional segment, as indicated above.
Apparently foreigners in India have to purchase tickets in US$ or have to go through the airline doing their international segment. I tried booking it through Virgin and they quote me a whopping £420 for the journey. Does anyone know any alternatives where i can get a cheaper fare ? Also can anyone clarify the situation regarding purchase of domestic/regional tickets for visitors in India.

Air fares are quite regulated on domestic sectors, and are limited only by availability, so you can often buy a ticket on the spot for a flight the same day, at a reasonable fare. Check out either of India's leading private airlines for more information on fares, or Indian Airlines:

Indian Airlines also has an all you can fly ticket for 15 days for $500, which may be worth while if you make 4 sectors or more. Has there been a fanatical somewhere who has bought it to fly all day on the whole Indian network? Maybe I will ever be the first
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
