The user development fee (UDF) on every passenger at the Kempegowda international airport has been hiked 120 per cent and now will be Rs 306 for domestic departures and Rs 1,226 for international departures from Tuesday, its operator said on Monday.

"The UDF has been revised to Rs 306 from Rs 139 for domestic departures and to Rs 1,226 from Rs 558 for international departures on every passenger flying out of Bengaluru from April 16," the Bangalore International Airport Ltd (BIAL) said in a statement.

The steep revision is based on the Airport Economic Regulatory Authority's (AERA) April 4 order after the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal's ruling of March 14, allowing the operator to collect revised fee for four months from April 16 to August 15.
