Good News! PIA Announces Huge Discount on Air Tickets for Umrah Pilgrims

PIA has offered a significant reduction in air fares for those going to Saudi Arabia for Umrah. A PIA representative said that pilgrims traveling to Madinah from several cities in Pakistan will get fewer tickets. A round-trip ticket from Karachi to Madinah has been reduced to Rs 76,000, excluding taxes. Passengers traveling to Madinah from Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar, Multan and Sialkot will pay Rs 86,000.

From an earlier rent of Rs 120,000, this reduction offers a saving of Rs 34,000. The representative confirmed the fact that these reduced rates are still valid and will last until July 15. A similar discount was introduced by PIA earlier this year for Saudi nationals, those on work visas and Umrah pilgrims to make travel more reasonable during scheduled times.

In terms of its financial performance, PIA’s revenue for the nine months ending January to September 2023 increased significantly, amounting to Rs 186 billion. Despite difficulties, such as the loss of Rs. 75 billion during this period, the airline showed an improvement over the previous year. Many pilgrims from Pakistan have already reached Madinah and Makkah as a result of the government-sponsored program to bring pilgrims to Saudi Arabia, which is continuing successfully.
