To make it easier for travellers to travel between Pakistan and China, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has immediately decreased the cost of flights between Islamabad and Beijing. PIA currently operates a Sunday passenger flight on this route once per week.
The Islamabad-Beijing flight will now cost 30% less, according to the national airline. Travellers flying to China for employment, business, education, or family visits will benefit from this change. According to sources, both Chinese and Pakistani citizens will gain greatly from the decreased price.
It’s vital to remember that Pakistan and China will jointly organise “The Year of Tourism” in 2023 to promote cross-cultural and interpersonal relationships. Earlier this year, PIA increased the discount rate on airfare for students visiting China by a whopping 27 percent. The national flag carrier also lowered the cost of domestic flights in the economy and executive economy classes by 20% during Eid-ul-Fitr.
Additionally, according to Kiran Imran Dar, Parliamentary Secretary for Railways, PIA made over Rs. 60 million in profit during the first quarter of 2023 (January through March). This demonstrates PIA’s commitment to enhancing its offerings and giving clients affordable travel options.
