Airlines charge heavy fare ahead of Eid

The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and other private airlines in the country have jacked up their fares up to 41 per cent on the pretext of rise in fuel prices in the international market and the soaring dollar.
After the increase in fares, two-way ticket from Lahore to Karachi is being sold up to Rs39,500 from the previous Rs28,000, reflecting an increase of Rs11,500.
Travellers observe that the increase in fares ahead of Eidul Fitr will cause further difficulties for the people of the country as the rising inflation has already done a number on them and is continuing to do so.
