b. Only 2
c. Both 1 and 2
d. Neither 1 nor 2

ANSWER: Only 1
 
  • The RCS routes would cover a length between 200 to 800 km.
  • But this criterion would not apply to hilly areas, islands, North-east region and for helicopter operations.
  • The selected airlines on their part would be expected to commit 50% of the seats on RCS flights to be sold at the specified airfare cap. They would also be required to maintain a frequency of minimum, three flights per week and maximum seven flights per week.
