DUBAI: The Pakistani government has increased special flight rates from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after the announcement of the reopening of airspace for international airlines.
Stranded Pakistanis have eagerly awaited normal flight operations for their earliest repatriation after patiently waiting for more than three months now unfortunately the ticket price has increased and was immediately implemented shortly after the announcement of this decision.
More than 50,000 displaced Pakistanis are still waiting to be repatriated from Dubai, according to figures revealed by the Dubai Pakistan Consulate. Pakistani Consul General to Dubai Ahmed Amjad Ali confirmed in his video message that ticket prices have changed from the emirate.
The Pakistani government has issued a notice about the resumption of international flights from Pakistan. “All international passengers and charter flights will be permitted to operate to and from all airports in Pakistan except Gwadar and Turbat,” the Civil Aviation Authority of Pakistan (CAA) stated a few days ago but flights from the UAE have not yet materialized. PIA raises its fees from Dubai to Islamabad, Peshawar and Punjab (Lahore, Multan, Faisalabad) from Dh1,110 (Rs50,300) to Dh1,470 (Rs66,700) for economy class and business class ticket prices will not change ie Dh2. 200 (Rs99,800).
Meanwhile, the PIA increased Dh270 (Rs12,200) in tickets for Karachi repatriation flights and will now be available in Dh1,270 (Rs57,600) instead of Dh1,000 (Rs45,300).
Pakistani Consul General Ahmed Amjad Ali stated in his video release that there will be around 18-20 special flights this week from Dubai. Although, he did not inform stranded Pakistanis about delays in normal flight operations. So far 22,000 stranded Pakistanis have been repatriated only from Dubai, the consul general said.
