Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) jacked up the fares for their domestic passengers. With the latest increase, the return ticket of Karachi to Islamabad bound flight is being sold at around Rupees 63,000.

The Pakistan International Airlines is charging Rs 31,540 for Karachi to Islamabad bound passengers and Karachi to Lahore bound passengers are being charged Rs 31,000 for a one-way flight.

The letter called on 021-111-786-786 to inquire the fares, confirmed with the details provided by the operator. Inquiry operator further said that the waiting list passengers are charged with double rates instead of Rs 16000.

It may be noted here that Rs 63,000 or more were being charged from the passengers traveling abroad, but with the recent hike, even domestic passengers are compelled to pay heavy fares.

On May 29, the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and other private airlines had also increased their fares after the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) had increased the fuel prices following a Brent Oil increasing trend in the global market and PKR devaluation.

The increase in fares ahead of Eid caused difficulties for the people of the country who use airways to travel to their loved ones.

After the increase in fares, PIA’s ticket from Lahore to Karachi was being sold up to Rs 31,000 from the previous Rs14,000.
