Following is the new tariff table for domestic flights:

The Transport office said that tariffs for destinations that are not reached by the resolution “will be calculated following the flight mileage, comparing it with the reference tariff for a route of similar distance in the same geographical region.”
“It is necessary to authorize the new tariff table in order to guarantee commercial flights public service provided by authorized companies,” the resolution adds.
