The airlines, which operate within the country, have doubled their tickets for the domestic flights in past three weeks. The sources told that PIA has set the price of one way flight ticket from Lahore to Karachi at Rs.30,135 and AirBlue charges for Rs.26,000 and the Serene Air charges for Rs.36,000 for the same flight. Airlines double domestic flights airfares.
You can buy the same ticket at about half rate I,e. from Rs.14000 to Rs.20000. the airlines like PIA, Air Blue and Serene Air have cut down the number of aircrafts for the domestic destinations.
The reason for increase in price of the tickets is still not known. Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has said nothing over this issue and the probable cause for increase in price of ticket is devaluation of rupee against dollar and there is price hike in other sectors of the country.
