The decision to reduce fares on international destinations follows PIA’s earlier announcement of a reduction in fares on domestic flights.
“It has been decided that there would be a significant decrease of 15 per cent in the PIA’s fare for the flights operating on the routes of Gulf and the United Arab Emirates, a 10 per cent reduction in tickets for Saudi Arabia and 8 per cent for Canada-bound flights,” he said.
