After most people returned home from their summer vacations, airfares from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Pakistan dropped to the year’s low.
A one-way ticket from Dubai to Karachi currently costs less than Dh. 400 (Rs. 26,000), according to the details.
According to Raja Mir Wasim, the manager of a Dubai-based travel agency, current airfares are still higher than they were during the pandemic’s first two years because demand was low due to travel restrictions, and people were concerned about being stranded overseas.
It should be noted that Pakistan is a major contributor to the UAE’s travel and tourism industry. Abu Dhabi Airports disclosed that Pakistan’s passenger number was around 485,000 in the first half of this year.
During the same time period, over 1.7 million people flew from Dubai International Airport to Pakistan, making it one of the airport’s top ten destinations.
Earlier this month, one-way ticket prices from the UAE to Pakistan during the Eid holidays reached Dh. 8,000. (approx. Rs. 515,000).
However, a South Travels DMCC agent stated that prices would be reduced by the end of July, with a complete return to regular rates by the end of September.
