It is pertinent to mention that Rs63,000 or more were being charged from the passengers traveling abroad, but owing to the recent hike, even domestic passengers are compelled to pay heavy fares.

On May 29, PIA and other private airlines had increased their fares after the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) had increased the fuel prices following a sharp increase in the international market.

It was noted that the increase in fares ahead of Eid caused difficulties to the people.
